Coalition supports healthcare reform

ALL FOUR coalition parties have expressed their political support for the Health Ministry’s proposed healthcare reform.

Pavol Hrušovský, the Christian Democratic Movement chairman, said after the meeting of the ruling parties on August 24 that the coalition had found a way to help the six reform laws pass the parliamentary debate, the TASR news agency wrote.

MPs will deal with the proposed laws next week. A major wave of opposition towards the reform has grown among many healthcare organisations as well as political parties in the opposition.

Health Minister Rudolf Zajac will, however, have to convince some opposition or independent MPs to support his bills as the ruling parties lost their majority in parliament at the end of last year and efforts to regain it have so far failed.
