Budget in hands of independent MPs

Independent MPs hold the fate of the Slovak state budget in their hands. The budget is due to go before parliament this week.

Opposition parties have already expressed their disagreement with the budget proposal and the ruling coalition does not have enough MPs to get it passed.

The independents are believed to be making some demands but do not want to increase the budget deficit. Last week the budget was approved by the Slovak government.
