Dzurinda: New Social Insurance Act will nationalise private savings

The Government's proposal for a new law on social insurance is a new form of nationalisation, SDKÚ-DS leader and former premier Mikuláš Dzurinda said at a press conference held by the leaders of the opposition parties on September 10.

The new law is a direct attack on ordinary people's savings, Dzurinda said. According to him, the adoption of such a law would represent the "theft of the century", and the Opposition will do everything it can to prevent people from losing a single crown of their savings.

According to the SDKÚ leader, excellent economic developments and state-budget resources make it possible to find a solution for the problematic social-insurance sector of the economy and to improve the situation for pensioners. But the new law is the Government's way of buying off its constituency, Dzurinda said.

He also noted that Fico has accused the country's private pension-savings companies (DSS) of bribing the Opposition and inviting journalists on special trips. But now that Fico has begun to hold meetings with the DSSs "it seems that they (the DSSs) have bought him," Dzurinda said. TASR
