Slovakia and Czech Republic support continuing EU Constitution ratification

THOUGH referendums on the European Constitution failed in France and Holland recently, Slovakia and the Czech Republic will support the continuation of the ratification process, said Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda and his Czech counterpart, Jiøí Paroubek.

Paroubek says that if necessary, the EU should allow member countries more than the allotted two years to approve the EU treaty. He hopes political representatives will show political courage and go for a repeat of the referendum in those countries it initially failed.

The Czech PM does not consider the EU Constitution to be “dead”, the news agency TASR wrote.

Slovak Prime Minister Dzurinda wants to appeal to Brussels to keep its promise concerning the length of the ratification process.

According to Dzurinda, it is necessary to show flexibility and an ability to listen to EU countries that have yet to ratify the constitutional treaty.

Both PMs think that the destiny of the euro is unrelated to the possible failure of the treaty.
