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.

Last year Schuster refused to sign and returned to parliament 19 laws, 11 of which were returned on grounds of being unconstitutional
