Government changes the reforms to please the socially weak

IN THEIR efforts to fine-tune some of the social reforms, the ruling coalition will try to help pensioners, self-employed people and the socially weak, the Hospodárske noviny daily reported.

Political analysts suggest that the real reason behind the fine-tuning is the coalition's fight for voter sympathy.

Changes will be mostly made to the pension reform and the bureaucracy that makes the lives of the self-employed more difficult.

Coalition politicians are ready to admit that some of the reforms the government has implemented have weaknesses that surfaced only when the reforms were put into practice.
