The authors of the draft are coalition MPs from the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) MPs, Radoslav Procházka, Pavol Abrhan and Pavol Hrušovský, who say they drafted the amendment because when an individual obtains citizenship in another country they must pledge allegiance to that country: to protect it, serve it and obey its laws and constitution.
