The ruling coalition will halt its disciplinary action against two MPs from the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, Štefan Kuzma and Martin Pado, for statements they made in parliament earlier this year.
The parliamentary mandate and immunity committee will, however, express its disappointment that the MPs used language that included personal attacks and insults. "It was enough to bring out an open discussion on their behaviour," the chairperson of the committee, Renáta Zmajkovičová of the ruling Smer party, told journalists.
She will ask the chairpersons of parliamentary clubs to encourage their members to avoid inappropriate language during future debates.
Since being established two and a half years ago, the Second Pillar has attracted almost 1.6 million people, which represents the majority of working Slovaks.
