Schuster: I never said no to Mečiar

President Rudolf Schuster, in an interview with the daily paper Pravda, said he had never promised not to give the mandate to form a government after elections to the opposition HZDS party and its chairman, Vladimír Mečiar. He said “I don’t for a second doubt” that the HZDS will win September elections, and scolded foreign politicians for public statements about the incompatibility of the HZDS with Nato membership. The president repeated his belief that a 49 per cent stake in SPP should not be sold for the price bid – Sk130 billion – but for Sk200 to Sk220 billion.
