President scorns MPs

At his New Year's meeting with a members of parliament delegation President Rudolf Schuster scorned the MPs yesterday for their approach to passing laws. Schuster said: "I feel bad when you pass a law and immediately after that a minister calls asking me not to sign the law," he said naming Finance Minister Brigita Schmognerová and Environment Minister Lászlo Milós as the most frequent callers. Last year Schuster did not sign and returned to parliament 19 laws, 11 of which were returned on grounds of being unconstitutional.
