Slota's party attacks private postal services

The ruling coalition Slovak National Party (SNS) accused private companies offering postal services of illegally competing with the business of state-run postal service company Slovenská Pošta (SP), the Hospodárske Noviny daily wrote on December 4.

A group of SNS MPs has submitted a draft revision of the law on postal services.

Alternative postal operators now deliver letters of up to 50 grams. As a result of this, they are not only taking clients from SP, but they are also breaching the state provider’s exclusivity. By law, SP has an exclusive right to provide this type of service so it can cover the losses it takes in its duties set by the law –for example, delivering letters to remote areas.

SP has turned to the Transport Ministry and the Postal Regulatory Office.
