Young Social Democrats disagrees with the introduction of tuition fees for part-time university students. The fees were approved by parliament on July 3. Róbert Sedlák, chairman of the Young Social Democrats, claims tuition fees are in conflict with the Slovak Constitution, which states that university studies should be free if the financial condition of the country allows for it.
According to Sedlák, Slovakia is economically successful and, therefore, university students should be able to study for free. "It is possible that we will organize protests against the amendment shortly," said Sedlák.
