Kováč signs territorial division bill into law

President Michal Kováč signed a law on July 17 defining regions and districts under Slovakia's new territorial reform, ČTK reported. Although he called the law "too centrist," he opted not to veto it because, he said, this would create "serious problems" given that the law outlining the country's new administrative division has already been approved twice. The opposition said it will appeal to the Constitutional Court.
