EU referendum campaign seen too short

FOURTEEN days is too short a time for an information campaign ahead of the May 16-17 referendum on Slovakia's accession to the European Union, Foreign Affairs Minister Eduard Kukan said on March 11.

"I think it will be necessary to work more intensively, not only during those 14 days, but, let's say, starting right now," he added.

But according to Deputy Prime Minister Pál Csáky, who is in charge of preparing the referendum campaign, there is still plenty of time.

The fact that the campaign has not been yet launched has already been criticised by Slovakia's chief negotiator with the EU, Ján Figeľ, as well as by the chair of the parliamentary committee for EU integration, Monika Beňová.
