Dzurinda says coalition strong enough

PRIME Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said the ruling parties were not in a minority position, even though they now have only 75 ruling MPs of the 150-strong chamber.

In a discussion show on the private TV channel Joj, Dzurinda denied that the cabinet is in a minority position that would endanger its functioning.

The PM also said that the opposition party Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) should not support a minority cabinet.
