Fine-tuning reforms

THE RULING coalition parties agreed at an informal meeting of a senior coalition body on October 20 that within two weeks a plan for fine-tuning the cabinet's right-wing reforms should be ready.

"Each [coalition] party will come up with their own proposals. We will coordinate them, and then agree on a plan at the coalition level," said PM Mikuláš Dzurinda.

Representatives of the coalition refused to give details of the plan.

According to the Hospodárske noviny daily, the plan may include increasing benefits to families with children, increasing subsidies for tenement housing, and local tax schemes, among other issues.
