Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda has for the first time openly admitted that the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) might leave the ruling coalition in September when parliament will try to overrule the presidential veto to revision to the law on abortions.
According to his statements, according to daily Pravda, Dzurinda has taken the side of Christian Democrats (KDH) in the conflict between the KDH and ANO over the abortions.
"The fall will show whether Pavol Rusko and ANO truly wish to remain part of the ruling coalition," Dzurinda said.
ANO leader Rusko said he has always known that Dzurinda was on the side of the KDH, which creates uneven conditions within the ruling coalition.
