Opposition prepares to recall ministers

OPPOSITION parties are preparing the ground for recalling the whole government and announcing early parliamentary elections, the Pravda daily wrote.

Recalling current ministers is one way this goal can be achieved. However, to do that, the opposition has to find at least 76 MPs that would support the action.

Even Christian Democrats admitted that if the opposition is successful, elections would become a reality.

The opposition is not yet sure which ministers they might recall. However, several ministers are on the list for potential recall, including Christian Democrat Ministers Martin Fronc and Vladimír Palko.

Communists want to recall Labour Minister Ludovít Kaník, on the other hand, SMER would like to see ANO Ministers Rudolf Zajac and František Tóth leaving.
