JÁN Füle, presidential spokesperson, said that Rudolf Schuster would not sign the recently passed law on large-scale privatisation.
The law would enable completion of privatisation of strategic firms, including heating firms and power distributors.
If the law is not signed, it automatically goes back to parliament, where MPs can override the presidential veto with the support of at least 76 votes.
The law was originally supported by 75 MPs.
