On October 18, the Pravda daily wrote that the Fico government will cut the number of civil servants by four percent, not twenty, as previously planned. The government had originally wanted to save more than Sk8 billion by slicing approximately 30,000 jobs.
The daily also points out that the cabinet approved a budget for next year that allocates Sk1.6 billion more for civil servant salaries. SITA
