Reader feedback: Who cares about EPP?

Re: European People's Party Chief concerned over SNS in government, Flash news briefs

The new Slovak government was elected by Slovak people in democratic elections. It was the Slovak people's choice. Why should Slovaks be dependent upon foreign countries or European People's Party whom they should elect? Who cares if the European People's Party dislikes the new Slovak government. Their judgment is very premature and discriminatory.

Every government, including newly elected governments should primarily worry about its citizens and their prosperity. It should be the government for the people and by the people; not for and by the European People's Party. The new Slovak government deserves a chance without any threats regardless from where and from whom they come.
