Government session held two days early to discuss crisis measures

An early session of the government takes place on Monday, February 9, instead of Wednesday, February 11, Silvia Glendová, spokesperson for Prime Minister Robert Fico told the TASR newswire on Saturday. Fico is convening this extraordinary cabinet session to further discuss legislative proposals to tackle the global economic crisis. The other reason is the rapid pace of the ongoing parliamentary session, which could end as early as the middle of next week.

Fico is convening this extraordinary cabinet session to further discuss legislative proposals to tackle the global economic crisis. The other reason is the rapid pace of the ongoing parliamentary session, which could end as early as the middle of next week.

Fico thinks that MPs should be able to discuss the anti-crisis measures prepared by the government during this session through a fast-track procedure. The government will also discuss a proposal concerning the cyclotron centre and the bill on the teaching profession being prepared by the Education Ministry. TASR
