Dirk Meganck, the EU’s chief negotiator on Slovak entry, has voiced disappointment that parliament refused yesterday to debate an anti-discrimination law, as well as with the wording of a recent retail chains law.
Meganck said he hoped the retail law would be made more precise, clarifying terms for suppliers and producers, and that barriers to market forces within the legislation would be removed. He added he hoped parliament would tackle the discrimination bill soon.
Both laws are part of the legislation Slovakia must bring into line with European Union rules if it hopes to join the 15-member bloc by 2004, as planned.
