Parliament is sending a different version of the amendment to the social insurance law to President Ivan Gašparovič than the one it approved last week, the Pravda daily wrote on November 5.
MPs first voted for voluntary entry into the second pension saving pillar, then in another amending proposal submitted by opposition MP Iveta Radičová, they rejected this option. But this change is not included in the final version of the bill.
MPs were not supposed to vote on Radičová's proposal, which contradicted the proposal they approved earlier about voluntary entry to and departure from the second pillar.
Smer MP Jana Valová ordered the vote on Radičová's initiative by mistake. She said that in such noise and stress, mistakes can happen.
The president must sign a law before it comes into force.
