Coalition meeting interrupted

RULING parties interrupted their meeting on April 6, postponing the discussion on the future of the ruling coalition until after the second round of the presidential elections.

PM Mikuláš Dzurinda told journalists that the failure of his Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) has "united us very much".

"The SDKÚ today is as firm as granite," said the PM.

According to the Slovak daily SME the SDKÚ bodies did not even consider the possible replacement of Dzurinda as head of the SDKÚ or as prime minister.

"Just like the current coalition, the SDKÚ has no other alternative [than to keep Dzurinda]," an unnamed source from the SDKÚ told SME.
