Schuster to address parliament

President Rudolf Schuster is to address parliament today in his annual state of the nation speech. He is expected to focus on Slovakia’s future after September elections, and to urge voters to take part in the ballot. He has also said he will discuss the spring 2002 crashes of several unlicensed deposit funds, as well as the privatisation of the state gas utility SPP.

Schuster has in past years been very critical of the government in the addresses, but has this year vowed to look towards Slovakia’s entry into the European Union, which may come as early as 2004.
