Dzurinda quits with clear conscience

FORMER Slovak PM Mikuláš Dzurinda, who served as the country's prime minister from 1998 to 2006, said he was leaving office with a clear conscience.

According to Dzurinda, Slovakia is in better shape than it was eight years ago.

"Slovakia is a peaceful, nice country. There are no ethnic tensions or animosities. Slovakia has a civic, pluralist society with a stable economy and democracy. I think that we have sown our seeds well," Dzurinda said.

The ex-PM now returns to the ranks of the opposition in parliament as a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee, the TASR news wire wrote.
