The parliamentary mandate and immunity committee is to examine complaints against MPs representing the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) ruling coalition party, and the party’s chairman, Richard Sulík.

Opposition Smer MP Renáta Zmajkovičová has submitted three SaS-related motions to the parliamentary filing room. The MP is demanding that a disciplinary procedure be launched over an alleged agreement between Sulík and four SaS deputies from the so-called Ordinary People (Obyčajní duľia) faction, and also over an incident during a recent secret ballot in parliament in which SaS deputies reportedly took photos of their ballot papers in order to prove how they had voted.

Committee head Gábor Gál (Most-Híd) confirmed that it would deal with the motions in December, the SITA newswire reported.
