The KDH opposes the EU constitution

THE CHRISTIAN Democratic Movement (KDH), a member of the ruling coalition, has insisted that it will not vote for the proposed EU Constitutional Treaty in parliament and demanded that a referendum be held on the issue.

According to the KDH vice chairman, Vladimír Palko, who is also the Slovak interior minister, the referendum should be held because the ratification of the document will bring Slovakia into a union of states.

Representatives of the EU member states should sign the EU Constitution in Rome on October 29 and the final deadline for the ratification of the document is November 1, 2006, wrote the daily Hospodárske noviny.

The KDH and the Slovak Communist Party, which is in the opposition, are requesting the referendum; all remaining parliamentary parties support the document being ratified by the MPs.
