Last parliament began June 18

THE LAST session of parliament in the Dzurinda government's four-year term began on June 18 with a massive 160 points of business, 50 of which are legislation related to Slovakia's entry to the European Union.

Deputies have promised to work late to approve the needed bills, but enduring problems with absenteeism and approaching election campaigns have ignited fears that at least part of the slate will be dropped.
