The opposition Slovak National Party (SNS) is preparing a charter of the rights of the Slovak nation, a document that the party expects to be signed by various Slovak personalities, SNS vice-chair Rafael Rafaj announced on Tuesday, February 8.

"It's only being arranged according to a scheme for now," Rafaj told the TASR newswire, adding that the modern age calls for such a document, as "Slovaks seem to have vanished from this republic". "Nobody speaks about them [Slovaks], nowhere can you find their rights defined; not even in the Slovak Constitution, in which, however, and quite paradoxically, the rights of minorities are mentioned. I'm asking now where Slovaks are defined? Where have they disappeared to?" asked Rafaj.

The SNS vice-chair went on to emphasise that Slovaks form an indigenous nation, which is why the SNS is pushing for "these unsequestrable and inalienable rights to be defined in the spheres of language, culture, indigenousness, as well as original spiritual and Christian values". Rafaj also said that the SNS is planning to organise an international conference on multiculturalism. The event could take place towards the end of April.
