Failure in referendum could destroy government

If the May referendum on EU entry fails to attract a sufficient number of "yes" voters, the government could fall, according to coalition New Citizen's Alliance leader Pavol Rusko.

"Defeat in the referendum would be a serious problem and a failure for all political representatives, so that all coalition parties would have to consider whether they can competently communicate with the people and are still able to govern," Rusko said.
