The opposition parties want to use the session to discuss their proposals to tackle the global economic crisis in Slovakia. They have criticised the government's anti-crisis measures to date as being insufficient. The opposition are proposing tax cuts, reductions in payments to the state, adjustments to the Labour Code and public-tender proceedings and a reduction in the number of state employees. TASR
