PM Fico uses Open-House Day to blast opposition

Prime Minister Robert Fico, speaking on Sunday, May 31 in the Government Office during Open House Day, said that if he were to take what he reads about himself in the media seriously, he would “jump right out the window”, reported the TASR newswire.

Fico said that the government needs to feel that what it does is good for people, adding that he encounters people's positive reactions to his government’s policies when he meets them face-to-face travelling around Slovakia, according to TASR.

Fico said that both the media and the opposition parties have many opportunities to lead a constructive dialogue with him, but he doesn't want to get involved in pointless arguments. However, Fico said that among a host of other important issues there is also the Special Court, even though no normal Slovak ever asks him about the Special Court.

He went on to say that he is also interested in the words of the Hungarian opposition party leader, Viktor Orbán, directed at those people who will be elected as Slovak MEPs to represent the Carpathian Basin.

“Have we gone totally crazy?” asked Fico, as quoted by the TASR newswire, adding that Slovak national interests, Slovak sovereignty, social issues and the economic crisis are the important issues. He also said the opposition did nothing all week but carry out inspections at the Environment Ministry. He also wondered aloud why companies are still postponing housing insulation projects when the Government has set aside over €73 million for this purpose. TASR
