SaS ministers walked to work instead of driving

Ministers from the ruling Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party Daniel Krajcer, Juraj Miškov and Ľubomír Galko walked to work on September 22 morning instead of being driven in their government cars.

Ministers from the ruling Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party Daniel Krajcer, Juraj Miškov and Ľubomír Galko walked to work on September 22 morning instead of being driven in their government cars.

They decided to come to the government session on foot because of the Day without Cars initiative taking place on September 22. The three of them met at 9:00 in front of the Slovak Culture Ministry. Defence Minister Galko took the issue so seriously that he even refused to drive to the Culture Ministry headed by Krajcer – he rode a bicycle. “I want to support the environmental case, and today that means a day without cars. We had to decide between me coming on foot or on a bicycle. But we decided for the bicycle as we has a charity event today – we visited children at the hospital in Kramáre – and that would be too far,” Galko told the TASR newswire. Galko parked his bicycle at the Culture Ministry and joined his two colleagues in walking to Freedom Square where the Slovak Government Office resides.
