Reading of new health law delayed

Yesterday's extra parliamentary session on corruption interrupted negotiations on proposed changes to the health-care law. MPs were supposed to vote on the reforms today.

Opposition MPs continue to criticise the new proposals, which include the introduction of many charges for patients.

The group of former HZDS MPs led by Vojtech Tkáč announced that they would not support the new measures, as they considered them unconstitutional.
