Delays to EU yes campaign

Slovak EU negotiator Ján Figeľ says he is disappointed that the government campaign ahead of a referendum on EU entry has not yet begun, only 66 days to go before the vote.

Research from the Statistics Office suggests that two-fifths of Slovaks feel there is a lack of information on entry to the EU.

A month ago, the head of the EU Delegation to Slovakia, Eric van der Linden, expressed his concerns that the May referendum would not attract the 50 per cent of voters needed to validate the results.
