Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová set out six priorities for her new government, which she said were intended to improve life in Slovakia, before assembled MPs, ministers, and Slovakia’s president in parliament on Tuesday, August 3, the SITA newswire wrote.

“One: the healthy and sustainable economic performance of the state. Two: zero tolerance of corruption, and securing access to justice. Three: sufficiency of work opportunities, which will reduce social risks. Four: motivating the business environment and an active civil society. Five: an educated people and an innovative society. And six: access to quality medical care,”
Radičová stated in her introduction to the new government’s programme.

Parliament opened its debate on the programme document on Tuesday afternoon. The prime minister also emphasised in her address the restoration of trust in the relationship between citizens and the government. “Trust, and not fake symbols and gestures, are an inevitable condition for patriotism and pride in our country,” she said. According to her, the next four years will be marked by moves to deal with the negative impacts of the crisis and the reduced circumstances of some citizens. “Today, we are not discussing prepared solutions but just piles of unpaid bills,” Radičová remarked.
