Coalition leaders do not want Schuster's help

Ruling coalition parties are not open to the idea that President Rudolf Schuster tries to help to iron wrinkles within the ruling coalition. Hungarian Coalition (SMK) leader Béla Bugár told daily SME he does not think Schuster has a potential to help.

According to Bugár, the fact that Schuster is a president would not make the ruling coalition members to respect him more than their partners.

Political scientist Grigorij Meseznikov says that Schuster has already entered the ruling coalition plight when he vetoed the revision to the law on abortions and opened a space for the coalition parties to seek compromises. He says that further presidential activities in this sphere would be unfortunate.
