Slota accuses Bugár of anti-state activities

JÁN Slota, the chairman of the ruling Slovak National Party (SNS), has accused opposition Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) leader Béla Bugár of subversive activities against the Slovak state.

According to Slota, Bugár called on politicians and diplomats in Hungary after the June 17 general elections to “take steps against the current political coalition in Slovakia”.

The SNS leader said that Bugár should lose his MP’s mandate because of his actions.

He did not say, however, where or with whom Bugár allegedly met to urge such a strategy. Bugár refused to comment on Slota’s allegations, and the SMK later stated that the SNS is continuing with its traditional anti-Hungarian and anti-SMK rhetoric from the 1994-1998 period when it was last in power, the SME daily wrote.
