Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said the state would invest Sk10.6 billion in highway construction next year (an election year), the highest total in Slovak history. Highway spending in 1997 and 1998 by the previous Vladimír Mečiar government was criticised by Dzurinda when in opposition as a ploy to buy votes at the expense of indebting the state.
