Labour Minister Viera Tomanová is opposing the HZDS proposal to change the proportion of pension contributions between the state-run social security provider Sociálna Poisťovňa and the second pillar, the daily Hospodárske Noviny wrote on October 2.
HZDS chairman Vladimir Mečiar proposed to change the ratio from 9:9 to 12:6 for a period of three years. After that period, contributions to the second pillar would increase to 9.5 percent.
Tomanová said this requirement is unacceptable, and called for discussion on the issue.
Mečiar pledged the support of his party, a junior ruling coalition member, for a draft government amendment to the social insurance law on the condition that the government incorporate his proposed cahnges.
