Prime Minister Robert Fico said on June 11 that he can't see any room for cuts or increases in income tax or other salary deductions due to the tense atmosphere at state insurer Sociálna Poisťovňa and the healthcare sector.

"We don't want to raise taxes and choose the way of laying other burdens on our citizens," Fico said after carrying out an inspection at the Finance Ministry. "The philosophy is not to privatise, not to increase deductions, but just the opposite: to save and create the conditions for strong economic growth. This is our way of building a social state.” TASR
