During his press briefing in Bratislava on December 10, opposition KDH chairman Pavol Hrušovský said that Fico’s allegations about the Opposition rank him among the likes of Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and Alexander Lukashenko. He also asked the Prime Minister to apologize.
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
