Cabinet crisis averted

Although the Christian Democrats yesterday blocked passage of a civil service bill backed by their ruling coalition partners, the Ano party, Ano leader Pavol Rusko said the sides had reached a deal allowing the draft to go forward.

The agreement appears to have averted a threatened crisis in the ruling coalition, which is only two months into its four-year term. The bill forms a major part of Ano’s planned reform of the health care system, as it allows medical staff to be paid according to performance rather than merely length of service.
