PM calls Opposition ‘obstructionists’

After sailing through another no-confidence vote on January 22, Prime Minister Robert Fico said the opposition’s attempts to oust him from office were only obstructing government work.

After sailing through another no-confidence vote on January 22, Prime Minister Robert Fico said the opposition’s attempts to oust him from office were only obstructing government work.

"The opposition apparently can’t think of anything else," Fico said shortly after the failed vote, according to the SITA newswire.

Fico said the vote should have been directed at opposition SDKÚ-DS chairman Mikuláš Dzurinda, whom Fico claimed is losing popularity within his party and whom he accused of spreading lies.

Fico emphasized that the ruling coalition is absolutely stable, even though Vladimír Mečiar, chairman of the ĽS-HZDS, was absent from the vote. SITA
