IN SHORT

ANO agrees to delay abortion amendment

THE NEW Citizen's Alliance (ANO) decided to postpone the vote on their amendment to the abortion law until after the Constitutional Court rules on the legislation in October.

The ruling Christian Democrats (KDH) oppose the ANO-proposed amendment, which would allow abortions to be carried out until the 24th week of pregnancy in cases where the foetus is genetically damaged.

ANO proposed the law months ago and the legislation was passed by parliament with the help of votes from opposition MPs. But President Rudolf Schuster vetoed the legislation and parliament was supposed to vote on it in the beginning of September.

At a meeting of ANO's board, the party decided to postpone the vote until October. Its coalition partners advised the move to the party following the increased tensions over the legislation.
