ACCORDING to the government's programme manifesto, arrogant officials, red tape and bureaucratic bullying should soon become a thing of the past, the Hospodárske noviny daily wrote on August 21.
A special bill to tackle these bureaucratic abuses is being prepared by Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák. Deputy Minister Vladimír Čečot also stressed the need to cut bureaucracy.
"We have to stop dragging people from one office to another when many procedures can be carried out by the officials themselves," he said.
