Coalition’s stormy meeting

ALTHOUGH ruling politicians confirmed that the April 6 meeting of the
Coalition Council had been stormy, they refused to comment on it for the media.

An unnamed ruling politician told the Slovak daily SME, however, that the meeting had been “terrible”, and another said that Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda was given the task of securing the ruling coalition a majority in parliament “in contract” within two weeks.
