JUST HOURS after a tentative peace was made between the ruling liberal New Citizen's Alliance party and the conservative Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) another serious conflict is looming in the coalition, the Hospodárske noviny daily reported.
The time bomb for the ruling partners is a planned repeated vote of confidence in the Education Minister Martin Fronc (KDH), which is being prepared for the June parliamentary session by the opposition Movement for a Democratic Slovakia.
In the previous confidence vote held in May, the ANO refused to back Fronc, arguing it had no trust in the minister.
ANO insists that its opinion on the minister has not changed. Following the June 1 meeting of the coalition, the KDH stated, however, that if ANO again broke the coalition agreement, the conservatives would ask PM Mikuláš Dzurinda to sack ANO chairman Pavol Rusko, Slovakia's Economy Minister, from the government.
If the PM refused to do that, the KDH would leave the coalition.
