Communist deputy turns parliament into a cabaret

COMMUNIST party (KSS) member Karol Ondriaš has turned a crucial parliamentary debate on the law on the privatisation of strategic companies into a cabaret, daily SME reported.

Ondriaš strongly opposes the law that would enable the privatisation of remaining strategic companies, and described Slovakia as a country being colonized by Western powers that brought only decay to Slovak society.

Trying to demonstrate the economic success of Communism, Ondriaš projected graphs and economic results on a big TV screen in the parliamentary discussion hall.

The Communist deputy claims that after companies went into private hands in Slovakia, hens started laying fewer eggs.

On November 12, the ruling coalition managed to push through a law on privatising strategic companies, making it possible to privatise property worth Sk82 billion (€1.99 billion).
