During the Smer-SD ceremony congress in Prešov on December 8, Fico said that opposition politicians don't have a moral right to criticize him, as the voters showed their 'appreciation' for their eight-year rule by throwing them out in the last election. Most damningly, the PM called the opposition politicians traitors.

"Their victory is that they sit in Parliament, and not in jail," Fico said. TASR
