Schuster returns pensions increase bill to parliament


PENSIONS will not rise by 6 percent as of July 1 this year, as President Rudolf Schuster has returned a bill stipulating the increase to parliament.

Schuster said he did not sign the law because he considered the Sk370 (?9) insufficient and proposed that MPs consider approving an increase of at least Sk500 (?12).
