Right wing promises tough opposition

RIGHT-wing parties have promised to voice harsh and unified opposition in parliament.

The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) have said it is now time for Smer to have a taste of its own medicine, the Hospodárske noviny wrote.

"The opposition will have plenty of people with plenty of experience, who know what it's all about, so the new government will not have an easy road," the KDH's Rudolf Bauer said.

He continued: "We are united in connection with reforms and we will try to make sure no serious damage is inflicted on the country."
