KDH ministers block cabinet resolution

MINISTERS from the ruling Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) have blocked a resolution that specifies the terms of cooperation between the Slovak parliament, government, and individual cabinet ministers, in respect to the EU, wrote the daily SME.

According to the resolution, ministers would be obliged to stick to the terms of the agreement when communicating with EU institutions.

KDH Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic argued that such proceedings could present constitutional problems.

"Can the government bind a minister on how he carries out his legal competencies?" said Lipšic.

The problem is to be dealt with by the coalition board, a senior body composed of representatives from the ruling parties, according to SME.
