Slota: Mikolaj to withdraw university amendment

Education Minister Ján Mikolaj (an SNS nominee) will most likely withdraw the amendment to the Law on Universities proposed on June 19, SNS chairman Ján Slota said after a Coalition Council meeting earlier that day.

According to Slota, the proposal includes serious shortcomings that need to be addressed. The introduction of tuition for part-time university students is the main sticking point, he said, adding that the measure has to be changed in order to win the support of the SNS’s coalition partners, Smer and the HZDS.
