The HZDS party on September 23 objected to a statement made by Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška (Smer) that implied some coalition MPs and opposition MPs were in cahoots to block reform of the procedure for taking attendance in parliament.

According to the TASR newswire, Paška's asserted that "when it comes to personal advantages … Dzurinda, Mečiar and Slota act in tandem".

“There has never been an alliance between Mečiar and Dzurinda," HZDS spokeswoman Monika Zakariášová responded.

The proposed reform, which was submitted by Paška and Smer caucus chairman Miroslav Číž, would have required electronic means of taking attendance. TASR
