Seven minute special session

A special parliamentary session on October 10 was cut short when Mps failed to approve the opposition's proposed agenda. The session was called by the opposition to address the conflict between the police and the Slovak Information Service (SIS) over the abduction of President Michal Kováč's son. Parliamentary Chairman Ivan Gašpárovič terminated the session after the vote. Three opposition parties - the Democratic Union (DU), the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and the Hungarian coalition - issued a joint statement demanding that Interior Minister Ľudovit Hudek support the police.
