NATO-vote activists optimistic

ACTIVISTS in favour of a referendum on Slovakia's NATO entry have collected more than 250,000 signatures from citizens supporting the idea of a vote. In order for a referendum to be called, 350,000 signatures must be collected on a petition. Organisers believe they will have the required number by early March.

Head of the petition committee, Eduard Chmelár, said: "I have no doubts that at the beginning of March we will exceed the legally required limit of 350,000 signatures."

Despite falling popular support for NATO entry, head of NATO's parliamentary assembly Douglas Bereuter said he believed that Slovaks would vote in favour if a referendum on the issue takes place.
