SF may turn to Constitutional Court

THE FREE Forum party announced that it was considering asking the Constitutional Court whether it was possible to shorten the election term through a referendum and also whether MPs would have to honour the result of the vote.

A referendum on early elections, initiated by the trade unions and supported by the majority of opposition parties, will take place on April 3, but doubts remain about whether it is legal in Slovakia to organise a popular vote asking such a question.

It is also unclear whether MPs would be bound to the result because 90 out of the total 150 would have to support a law ending the term of the ruling coalition. According to one argument, it is not possible to force MPs to vote in conflict with their conscience.
