Schuster starts farewell meetings

SLOVAK President Rudolf Schuster, whose term in office ends this month, has started a series of farewell meetings with the cabinet and the Slovak political parties.

Though it is an open secret that the president faced criticism from the government during his term for his refusal to sign some of the cabinet’s laws, Schuster was positive at the meeting with cabinet ministers on June 2, the Slovak daily SME wrote.

Schuster said that cooperation between him and the ministers had been especially positive in the area of foreign policy and noted that, although he refused to sign some cabinet laws, “in principle I supported the reforms”.

Schuster also met with the Slovak president elect Ivan Gašparovič.
