THE OPPOSITION party Smer wants to create a strategic partnership with trade unions.
The party's chairman, Robert Fico, said that he was not against including representatives of the trade union organization KOZ on Smer's list of candidates for next year's elections to the European parliament.
The trade unions recently announced that they would launch a petition for early elections, a goal that Fico supported.
