Fico has a ‘nice weather’ government, Mikloš says

Robert Fico’s government does not have good enough measures against the economic crisis, and that is why it accepts proposals from the opposition, Ivan Mikloš of the Slovak Christian Democratic Union (SDKU) party said, adding “this is a government for only nice weather and today the weather is not good.”

Robert Fico’s government does not have good enough measures against the economic crisis, and that is why it accepts proposals from the opposition, Ivan Mikloš of the Slovak Christian Democratic Union (SDKU) party said, adding “this is a government for only nice weather and today the weather is not good.”

Mikloš thinks the government passed insufficient measures against the crisis and that they are doing it too late. He believes the government should focus on softening the impact of the global economic crisis by making changes in the area of taxes, in the Labour Code and saving government funds, the SITA newswire reported.

The measures contained in the crisis package passed by the government up until now primarily support consumer demand and improve the business environment, reports SITA
