Opposition submits draft declaration on tax sovereignty

THE OPPOSITION Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and Hungarian Coalition
Party (SMK) submitted a draft declaration on the sovereignty of the Slovak Republic in tax matters to parliament yesterday.

The aim of the declaration, which has little hope of passing, is to bind Slovak cabinet ministers to reject any attempts towards tax harmonization within the EU.

According to KDH Deputy Chairman Vladimír Palko, Slovakia should keep full authority over its own direct taxes.

The KDH believes that the ruling euro-skeptic Slovak National Party might support the initiative, but the support of the remaining ruling parties is questionable. While the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia’s Milan Urbáni has already said that his party would not back such a declaration, Smer’s Jozef Burian said he would not comment on the proposal until he has seen it.
