President thinks current cabinet will remain in power

AFTER meetings with all parliamentary parties, president Ivan Gašparovič concluded that there is no political force in Slovakia that could lead to principal changes in the Slovak parliament.

According to the SME daily, Gašparovič thinks that unless unexpected events take place, the current coalition will continue until the proper end of the election term.

"Unless an unforeseeable event occurs, the government will stay in office until the end of its term," said Marián Bednár, head of the president's communications department, at a press conference on July 15.
