Opposition wants deputy minister sacked, more changes to press bill

Leaders of three parliamentary opposition parties met for political consultations on March 19 and issued a call for Prime Minister Robert Fico to take action and dismiss Martin Glváč from the post of State Secretary at the Ministry of Construction and Regional Development. The opposition voiced this demand in relation to the case of transferred land plots in Čierna Voda, near Bratislava, dating from 2004, the SITA newswire wrote. The chairman of the ethnic Hungarian party, SMK, Pál Csáky stressed at a press conference following the meeting that they intended to table a report on the activities of the Slovak Land Fund for discussion at the next parliamentary session.

He said that as the governing coalition is doing nothing, the opposition parties will draft a revision to the law to solve what they say are the problems surrounding the functioning of the Slovak Land Fund. The opposition says it is ready to discuss this draft amendment with the ruling coalition. In addition, current changes to the draft press bill suggested by the governing coalition are insufficient, according to the opposition parties. They are still waiting for further proposals linked particularly to the right to respond and the right to a correction, Csáky explained. If the coalition does not implement these changes, the opposition will submit amending proposals, he concluded. SITA
