Fico rejects Mečiar

Robert Fico, leader of the non-parliamentary Smer party, the country’s second most popular, told an international conference on Nato December 12 he would not consider joining former PM Vladimír Mečiar in government following September 2002 elections unless he saw evidence of serious reflection by Mečiar on his past wrongdoings.

Mečiar surprised the conference, which he himself had organised, by saying that his planned December 20 meeting with Nato Secretary General George Robertson had been put off indefinitely. Robertson’s press officers said they knew nothing about any meeting with Mečiar.
