SNS sides with SMER-SD

The head of the SNS, Ján Slota, has called on the Deputy Director of the Slovak Land Fund Branislav Bríza (ĽS-HZDS) to quit. This would bring a swift conclusion to the crisis within the governing coalition, Slota said, adding his belief that the coalition is “simply sacred".

Slota also said the SNS would not act against its partner, the ĽS-HZDS, by supporting the opposition's no-confidence motion against Agriculture Minister Miroslav Jureňa, under whose jurisdiction the Land Fund lies and who is also an ĽS-HZDS nominee.

Slota agrees with ĽS-HZDS head Vladimír Mečiar that Briza did not violate the law, but believes the General Prosecutor's office should look into the matter. SITA
