Post service draft strengthens monopoly

Parliament today may vote on a draft postal service bill that would cement the monopoly enjoyed by the Slovak Post Office on delivery of all parcels up to one kilo in weight; critics have said the original idea was to weaken rather than strengthen the Post Office’s position, and pointed to EU rules setting an upper limit of 350 grams on monopoly parcel delivery.
