Dzurinda: We can’t remain silent

The Opposition on December 5 submitted a proposal for a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Robert Fico. The leader of the SDKÚ-DS, Mikuláš Dzurinda, sees several reasons for this course of action, mainly Fico's responsibility for the recent scandal surrounding the Slovak Land Fund and his silence on how he gained some controversial real estate of his own in Bratislava.

Asked why the Opposition is attempting to have the premier dismissed despite the fact that this is extremely unlikely to succeed, Dzurinda said that it can't remain silent over "the scandal of the decade".

"There's also another strong argument: How else can we get time to speak to the prime minister?" said Dzurinda, complaining about Fico's unwillingness to answer the Opposition's questions and attend debates in the media. TASR
