EU warns against complacency

Head of the European Delegation to Slovakia, Eric van der Linden, warned Slovakia against complacency in its efforts to inform the public, even though polls show more than 70 per cent support for EU entry.

"Opinion polls show that more than 70 per cent of [Slovaks] are in favour of the entry of Slovakia to the union. In spite of agency estimates, it would be very risky if we relied on these numbers and did nothing," he said.

Pál Csáky, the minister responsible for a referendum campaign, has been criticised by various members of parliament for delaying its start.
