Slovakia second worst in adopting EU norms

SLOVAKIA is the second worst state of the 10 new EU members in adopting the required EU norms and directives. The country lacks 553 of the total 1,683 such directives, the Slovak daily Pravda wrote.

According to the daily, only Malta is worse off in this respect.

Ronald Strehár from the Cabinet Office said that the norms were supposed to have been approved by the beginning of May.

Martina Urmanič, spokesman for Pál Csáky, the Slovak Deputy PM for EU integration, said that "the most important commitments... have already been met".

The European Commission could fine Slovakia for the lacking norms.
