The opposition ethnic-Hungarian SMK party is planning to issue a stance on the so-called Protection Plan drawn up by the SDKÚ-DS to support the growth and employment in Slovakia, SMK chairman Pál Csáky said on October 29.

"This is a very good document at first sight," Csáky said.

SDKÚ-DS chairman Mikuláš Dzurinda said the document is open-ended and awaits proposals from other political parties before being submitted to parliament. The Christian Democrats (KDH), as the third opposition party, got the chance to study the document and were asked for assistance last week.

The 8-point plan is designed to protect economic growth in Slovakia by reducing the flat tax to 16 percent, establishing a trend-line for a balanced budget and focusing investment stimuli to central and eastern Slovakia. The plan also proposes introducing tax holidays for new businesses during their first three years in operation. Another point of the plan proposes extending maternity leave to one year and providing mothers with their full salary while on maternity leave. TASR
