Opposition: Fico is responsible for critical situation in healthcare

Opposition leaders Mikuláš Dzurinda (SDKÚ), Pál Csáky (SMK) and Pavol Hrušovský (KDH) agreed at their meeting on May 3 that it is Prime Minister Robert Fico, rather than Health Minister Ivan Valentovič, who is to blame for the "miserable situation in the healthcare sector," said Csáky.

The opposition has said it will not propose a no-confidence motion against Valentovič at the next parliamentary session due to begin on May 9. The parties will propose, however, a declaration obliging the cabinet to submit a report on "the miserable situation in the healthcare sector" to parliament. Fico's recent proposal to merge all health insurance companies into one state-owned insurer was also criticized.

Valentovič discussed the problems in the health sector with Fico on May 2 and 3. However, Valentovič did not say whether the meeting has brought any specific results. And did not answer journalists' questions.
