Billboards may show politicians united

TO PROMOTE a positive outcome in the planned referendum on Slovakia's EU entry, Deputy Prime Minister Pál Csáky wants to produce large-scale billboards showing the heads of all parliamentary parties jointly appealing to citizens to vote yes.

Csáky admitted that having some politicians standing shoulder to shoulder could be perceived as "a bit provocative", but he believed that such a demonstration of unity towards EU entry would "definitely reach people".
