SaS cancels planned meeting with journalists to discuss Hayek case

Co-governing Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS) on Thursday, September 23, cancelled a planned meeting with journalists – following its meeting with Prime Minister Iveta Radičová – during which the situation of government contracts for the Hayek Consulting firm was to have been discussed, the TASR newswire wrote. “If there are any further questions you should contact the Government Office,” said SaS chairman Richard Sulík's personal secretary, Tatiana Tóthová. She declined to comment on background information that SaS is considering leaving the coalition. One of the drafters of SaS's programme, MP Martin Poliačik, told TASR that such information is "rubbish".
