Prime Minister Robert Fico sees no reason to consider anything other than the current constellation of the ruling coalition after the next parliamentary elections to be held in two years.

"Smer values its partners. Our cooperation is correct," he told a press conference after the Cabinet session held in Topoľčany on July 16.

The prime minister refused to comment on the latest public opinion poll results, which show support for Smer at nearly 50 percent.

"We have never commented public opinion polls," he said.

According to results of the public opinion research institute at the Slovak Statistics Office, ÚVVM, conducted in July, Smer would be able to form a government with just one coalition partner. SITA
