Hrušovský: Bush will not visit parliament

SPEAKER of parliament Pavol Hrušovský is disappointed not to be meeting American President George Bush during his visit to Slovakia, the SITA agency reported.

Hrušovský considers it a failure of democracy that of the three highest constitutional officials Bush will talk only to the president and prime minister.

He had hoped Bush would have a similar meeting with the chairmen of party caucuses to the one planned with the Russian president.

Hrušovský was not impressed by the reasons given for Bush not meeting the parliamentarians.

"The fact that [Bush] is not used to meeting with chairmen of the caucuses of the states he visits is unconvincing," Hrušovský said.
