No money for elections, says ministry

The Interior Ministry complained that it has received little money to organise the September elections. In 1998 when 16 parties ran for the elections the ministry worked with a budget of Sk239 million. With the current 26 parties and the lower value of the Slovak crown, the ministry has Sk225 million.
