Coalition starts budget marathon

COALITION parties are already preparing for the budget in 2006, which is an election year.

Last year, requests from the various coalition members to Finance Minister Ivan Miklóš, meant that the budget deficit deepened by 0.2 percent of GDP, the Hospodárske Noviny business daily reported.

This sum represents more than Sk2.5 billion (€63.6 million).

However, the financial priorities of the cabinet meant that the demands of individual ministries were not covered, according to the daily.

This year, the pressure should loosen, in spite of next year's budget being an electoral year.
