Last push for EU referendum

On the last full day of campaigning prior to the EU referendum, representatives from all seven Slovak parliamentary parties, the president, and other members of Slovakia's elite walked the streets of Bratislava together to show their support for Slovakia's entry to the EU.

In an interview with the daily Pravda, President Rudolf Schuster said "The referendum on the EU is not about party political voting, but a vote for the future."

He added that he did not agree with the suggestion that the government should resign if the referendum fails to reach the 50 percent turnout needed for it to be valid.
