Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico on October 2 said it was unjustified for Party of European Socialists (PES) chairman Poul Nyrup Rasmussen to say Slovakia’s Smer-SD party should be given more time to remove extremism from its government before a decision is reached on whether to prolong its suspension from the PES.
Fico emphasized that Smer-SD was interested in regaining its status within the PES, and would cooperate fully to that effect. TASR
