Slota to help Fico avoid suspension by PES

JÁN Slota, the head of the far-right Slovak National Party (SNS), has agreed to help Prime Minister Robert Fico and his socialist Smer party avoid suspension by the Party of European Socialists (PES) due to its cooperation with the SNS.

According to the Pravda daily, Slota will declare that the SNS respects democratic values and send it to the PES by October 12, the day the PES is to decide whether to suspend Smer.

"I am surprised that I have to declare something like that, but we want to accommodate our coalition partner. We have no problem making such a declaration," Slota said.

It is now believed that the decision to suspend Smer could be delayed, and that the PES top board will recommend that a final decision be made in December.
