Unions collect 115,000 signatures for referendum on early elections

DURING the first week of the petition for a referendum on early elections, the trade unionists have managed to collect more than 115,000 signatures calling for the removal of the current cabinet, news wire SITA wrote.

President of the Confederation of Trade Unions Ivan Saktor is satisfied with the results and assumes that the petition will succeed.

Opposition parties Smer, the Slovak Communist Party (KSS), Democratic Left party (SDL), and Slovak National Party (SNS) have been assisting the unions.

The unions want to have the team of PM Mikuláš Dzurinda removed for what they call an attitude damaging to Slovak society and the adoption of laws hostile to the country’s citizens.
