Social insurance bill sunk

PARLIAMNET turned down the Labour Ministry's proposal for an amendment to the social insurance law which would have given minister Ľudovít Kaník a free hand to withdraw directors of the social security provider Sociálna Poisťovňa, the daily SME wrote.

The amendment would have omitted from the the document the section that defines just cause for dismissal of the provider's directors.

The draft failed due to the reluctance of the deputies of the New Citizens Alliance, Hungarian Coalition Party, and Christian Democratic Movements to stand behind Kaník's reform.

Only recently, Education Minister Martin Fronc also failed in his reform when the parliament rejected his party's proposal for the installation of university tuition fees.
