Fico and cabinet celebrate May Day in Liptovský Mikuláš

The ruling Smer party and the town of Liptovský Mikuláš organised town-wide celebrations on May 1 to mark the third anniversary of Slovakia's entry to the EU.

Almost 600 people met in front of the former Black Eagle pub, which has been the venue for local May 1 celebrations since 1890. Prime Minister Robert Fico and Interior Minister Robert Kaliňák were also there.

Mayor Ján Blcháč of Liptovský Mikuláš said in a speech that on May 1, 1890, 200 people came to ask for their working hours to be shortened. They requested a full day's rest on Sundays and in the mornings of public holidays.

Fico said in his speech that May Day celebrations are a good opportunity to draw the public's attention to the importance of adopting the amended Labour Code.
