President returns health bill to parliament

President Rudolf Schuster has refused to sign a new health bill that was due to come into effect at the beginning of April. The president objected to a range of charges for health services introduced by the bill, saying they were not in agreement with international treaties on children's rights. A spokesperson for Health Minister Rudolf Zajac said: "The future of the new bill is now in the hands of MPs. Parliament must show that it stands behind the reforms of the health service." If parliament passes the bill a second time, it will come into law without the president's signature. Compiled by Conrad Toft from press reports.
