Petition for outlawing the SMK launched

THE SLOVAK Revival Movement (SHO) began collecting signatures for the abolition of the ruling Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK).

According to SHO, the SMK was discriminating against everyone except for Hungarian nationals living in Slovakia, the SME daily wrote. SHO chairman Róbert Švec said, however, that the petition was not directed against the Hungarian national minority living in Slovakia.

According to Švec, the "last straw" that provoked him to start the petition was the recent statements made by some SMK members. The first statement, made by Edit Bauer, European Parliament MP (MEP), claimed that the national minority was denied the right to speak Hungarian in the Slovak Parliament, and the second belonged to SMK's MEP Arpád Duka-Zólyomi, in which he claimed that his party was not against any type of autonomy for the Hungarian minority in Slovakia.

The SMK's Miklós Duray said that the petition was ridiculous.
