Slovakia falling off EU pace

Parliament yesterday debated Slovakia’s record in passing laws related to its entry to the European Union; fears are mounting that the country will not approve the 42 remaining laws it needs before an effective June 2002 deadline. Parliament that month closes for the summer and a campaign leading up to September elections; with the uncertainty surrounding the fall ballot, and the time a new government will need to settle into office, the current cabinet has decided Slovakia needs all EU-related work done before the summer break if it is to meet the general end-2002 deadline for EU entry frontrunners.
