President returns social insurance amendment to parliament

President Ivan Gašparovič returned the recently-approved amendment to the Social Insurance Act to parliament on November 8, the parliamentary press department announced.

The president, in a letter to Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška, said that because the arguments for returning the bill were indisputable, there was no need for him to take part in a parliamentary session.

On October 30, coalition MPs mistakenly voted both for and against a provision setting a temporary period during which savers would be able to opt in or out of the private second pillar of the pension system. Gašparovič announced on November 6 that he would return the amendment to parliament, adding that it was wrong to engage in political games in response to a "technical lapse".
