No NATO referendum

The petition for a referendum on NATO entry has ended in failure. The petition committee has given up after only managing to attract 191,000 signatures, less than the 350,000 required to forced the government to hold the referendum.

Eduard Chmelár, one of the petition organisers, said: "I cannot disguise my disappointment. Slovak citizens are accustomed to certain passivity."

Chmelár said the final straw was when President Schuster signed the entry of Slovakia to NATO on April 15.
