Coalition regrets ANO position

Members of the ruling coalition have expressed regret at the decision of coalition partner ANO to support opposition calls last week for a special meeting of parliament to discuss corruption and phone tapping allegations levelled against Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda's SDKÚ.
Leader of the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) Béla Bugár said that ANO's position would "allow the opposition to use the space and time against the ruling coalition". MP for the coalition SDKÚ Roman Vavrík said he "could not see how [ANO] hoped to continue to rule with us".
ANO vice-chairman Ľubomír Lintner said the coalition agreement remained intact and that the party only wanted Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda to answer questions arising from an ongoing surveillance scandal. He asked: "Who is running the state - politicians elected by the people or special interest groups behind the scenes?"
