Hungarians offer know-how for improving Slovakia

Béla Bugár, the chairman of the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK), said that the Hungarian community in Slovakia was ready to offer all its knowledge and abilities to turn Slovakia into a prosperous country. Bugár made the statement in parliament July 3 during discussions on public administration reform, including the re-division of Slovakia's regions (the SMK was in favour of a proposal to form 12 units, rather than the existing eight, including a so-called Komárno County, which would be approximately 40% ethnic-Hungarian).

"If you say that we must not shape territorial units based on the ethnic principle," Bugár said in his speech, "then I must say that we should not carry out the reform of public administration based on an anti-Hungarian principle."
