The ruling coalition pushed through parliament on November 26 a proposal to freeze the salaries of some state officials.

Coalition parties approved the salary-freezing tool as part of an amending proposal to an amendment of the income tax law.

However, after the law had been approved Stanislav Kubánek, the Smer MP who had submitted the draft, was unable to explain to journalists whom the new piece of legislation would affect.

Opposition MPs Klára Sarkozy (SMK) and Stanislav Janis (SDKÚ) criticised the measure as completely incomprehensible. SITA
