KDH opposes campaign for anti-discrimination law

The Christian Democrats (KDH) are against an information campaign supporting the adoption of an anti-discrimination law that the cabinet launched on September 1.

The KDH's attitude might open up another conflict within the ruling coalition torn by fights between the KDH and the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO).

The KDH objected that Deputy Prime Minister Pál Csáky, who is responsible for the project that will cost almost Sk 1 million (€23,8000), has never explained to the Christian Democrats the objectives of the state-funded campaign, daily SME reports.

However, the KDH remains opposed to the adoption of the anti-discrimination law.
