Programme statement moves to parliament

The cabinet approved a programme statement which it will today put to a vote in parliament, and which contains sweeping reform measures with few concrete promises or figures.

Among the cabinet’s promises are to introduce university and hospital stay fees, to speed up the work of the courts and reduce corruption, to make the Internet cheaper, and to improve the living conditions of the Roma minority.
