Trade unions collect signatures

THE CONFEDERATION of Trade Unions (KOZ) chairman, Ivan Saktor, announced that his organisation has thus far collected 115,000 signatures from citizens who support early elections in Slovakia.

The petitions started two weeks ago.

According to Saktor, KOZ will have the required 350,000 signatures by December 15, wrote the Slovak daily Pravda.

The opposition Smer and the Slovak Communist Party have also helped collect signatures.

The biggest support for the petition came from the Žilina region, in northern Slovakia, while the lowest support came from the Bratislava region.
