Schuster scolds ministers

DURING his New Year's meeting with members of a parliament delegation President Rudolf Schuster scorned the MPs last week 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 Schmögnerová and Environment Minister Lászlo Miklós as the most frequent callers.
