Coalition leaders meet on budget

Coalition leaders are meeting at the SNS party headquarters to discuss items high on the agenda for the coming parliamentary session.

They are also discussing the draft budget for next year.

The junior member of the ruling coalition, the HZDS party, already said that draft laws on intelligence services, the fight against terrorism and the National Security Office (NBÚ) Act are not acceptable in their current form. It also said that the published draft state budget for next year is unacceptable.

SNS leader Ján Slota said that his party would like to see a flood prevention program as one of the priorities in the draft state budget for next year. He said Slovakia needs stronger flood prevention measures.
