Deputies' reactions to the cabinet's first 100 days

"In general, people are very tired while they have a feeling that the cabinet did not manage to settle accumulated problems during the first hundred days of its rule. However, one should realize that the current cabinet has inherited a ruined country with empty pockets. It will take not just a hundred days but two years to get Slovakia out of its unfavourable economic situation." - František Mikloško, the ruling coalition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH).
"The cabinet, by its performance to date, has stood against the nation. It has done this not only by the introduction of bilingual report cards, but especially by the baseless and unjustifiable advances it has made towards the Party of the Hungarian Coalition (SMK), in its readiness to adopt a law on the use of minority languages in official documents. This law discriminates against the Slovak nation on its own territory." Anna Malikova, the opposition Slovak National Party (SNS).

"Despite the criticism directed towards the cabinet, I praise its performance. The cabinet is showing that it can operate together despite the many political colours that make it up. It has taken several important steps that many people could not have not hoped for. It is positive that Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda canceled the amnesty granted by Vladimír Mečiar to people involved in the abduction of Michal Kováč Junior and those who thwarted the [1997] referendum. Another positive signal is the cabinet's resolute attitude to the revision of privatization deals made during Mečiar's reign." - František Šebej, the ruling Slovak Democratic Coalition (SDK).
