EU legislation: Slovakia still lags behind

SLOVAKIA ranks 21st out of the EU25, and last among the newest member states, in terms of meeting the target dates set for adopting EU legislation, the TASR news agency wrote.

According to the EC Secretariat's most recent list, Slovakia should have adopted a total of 2,594 directives by May 2, 2005. However, 48 directives are still waiting, which gives Slovakia a 98.15 percent fulfilment rate.

Portugal, Greece, Luxembourg and Italy are the only countries lower down on the list than Slovakia. The neighbouring Czech Republic ranked 20th with a 98.85 percent fulfilment rate.

The average EU fulfilment rate is 98.69 percent. The EC General Secretariat publishes the rate of EU legislation adoption quarterly. Slovakia ranked 20th in the previous list.
