THE OPPOSITION parties offered their support for several measures that were taken by the Economic Crisis council, established by Prime Minister Robert Fico, SITA newswire informed.

Most of these proposals had originally come from the opposition, Mikuláš Dzurinda, the leader of opposition Slovak Democratic Christian Union (SDKÚ), was quoted as saying by SITA. One of these is increasing the personal deductible on the income tax, which was proposed by Ivan Mikloš (SDKÚ) in August 2008.

“So we will support those measures, that really have an aim, at the upcoming session of the parliament,” Dzurinda said.

However, the opposition insists that some basic proposals are missing from those of the Economic Crisis council, SITA reported.

“We are convinced that the Slovak economy needs a strong stimulus,” Dzurinda said. “We all agreed that the basis of these measures must be found in decreasing the income tax rate, in decreasing social fund contributions, in making order in these complex contributions, as well as in the Labour Code.”

The opposition has also called for measures that would help save government expenditures.
