EP elections require constitutional change

BEFORE elections to the European Parliament (EP) can take place in Slovakia, the ruling coalition must add the elections to the Constitution, and thus reach an agreement with the opposition, as the ruling MPs alone do not have enough votes to push through changes in constitutional laws.

The ruling parties only have control of 75 MPs, but 90 are needed for approving constitutional laws and changes in such laws.

In return for their support to the changes, the opposition requires the establishment of investigation committees in parliament.
