MPs break president’s veto

PARLIAMENT passed the six health reform laws October 21 that President Ivan Gasparovic vetoed three days earlier. A safe majority of more than 80 ruling coalition and independent MPs supported each of the six laws.

The healthcare reforms will take effect in January, 2005.

According to the daily Pravda, opposition parties are planning to challenge the reform in the Slovak Constitutional Court, the top authority for resolving legal disputes.
