Church calls for referendum participation

Catholic and evangelical bishops have urged Slovaks to participate in the EU referendum taking place this weekend.

"Not taking part in the referendum is a negative vote, a vote against Slovakia's entry to the European Union," said evangelical bishop Július Filo.

Chair of the Conference of Slovak Bishops, František Tondra, said that a letter had been read out in all churches urging participation, as had been done before the parliamentary elections.
