Dzurinda wants cabinet to continue

PM MIKULÁŠ Dzurinda wants the cabinet to continue with the same parties after the next parliamentary elections, the daily SME reported.

On the occasion of the fifth anniversary since the founding of his Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), Dzurinda also said that a potential government dominated by the opposition Smer is a serious threat. He said that a Smer government would bring populism, social demagoguery, and erosion of reforms to Slovakia.

The PM wants to continue to cooperate with his current partners, the Hungarian Coalition Party and the Christian Democratic Movement, after the 2006 elections.

According to the PM the SDKÚ has become the main guarantor of changes for the better in Slovakia because it promotes a liberal economy and free civic society.
