Public concerned about lack of EU information

Almost 50 per cent of Slovaks are concerned by a lack of information about the European Union, according to research by the Public Opinion Research Institute of the Slovak Statistics Office. Forty per cent believe sufficient information is available.

Slovakia will vote on whether to join the EU in a referendum on May 16 and 17. The government has been criticised by the opposition for what it sees as a casual attitude towards informing the public. A referendum campaign is not due to start until the middle of April.
