SNS plans to submit amendments to laws on ÚPN and elections

The governing-coalition Slovak National Party (SNS) plans to submit an amendment to the law on the Nation's Memory Institute (ÚPN) at the parliamentary session in September, SNS caucus chairman Rafael Rafaj said at a press conference in Bratislava on May 31.

SNS chairman Ján Slota, who was also present, announced that the party was also considering submitting an amendment to the General Election Act using its Hungarian counterpart as a model.

Slota said that in the neighbouring Hungary, every minority is represented in parliament. According to Slota, such a system would be beneficial to Slovakia.
