Governing coalition accuses SMK MPs of violating constitution

The three-member ruling coalition in Slovakia wants parliament to censure the MPs from the ethnic-Hungarian SMK party who participated in the September session of the Forum of Hungarian Deputies of the Carpathian Basin in Budapest.

The three-member ruling coalition in Slovakia wants parliament to censure the MPs from the ethnic-Hungarian SMK party who participated in the September session of the Forum of Hungarian Deputies of the Carpathian Basin in Budapest.

The wording of the resolution has not been agreed upon yet but the leaders of Smer-SD, the SNS and the ĽS-HZDS agreed on October 20 that they would submit it to the parliamentary agenda. SNS Chairman Ján Slota insists that SMK MPs clearly violated their deputy oath of office and thus also the Constitution.

The Forum of Hungarian Representatives of the Carpathian Basin, an institution of the National Assembly of the Hungarian Republic, associates MPs representing ethnic Hungarians in neighbouring countries. Its president, Romanian MEP László Tökes, recently met with SMK Chairman Pál Csáky over the issue of autonomy for Hungarian-Slovaks, which evoked an angry response among Slovak politicians. SITA
