Igor Matovič, the head of the Ordinary People faction of the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party who now serves as an independent MP, has rejected widely-spread allegations that
his appeals to political parties to reduce the size of Slovakia’s parliament is designed to attract attention to his plan to establish his own political party, the SITA newswire reported.

Neither the four parties of the governing coalition nor the opposition parties agree with his idea to reduce the size of parliament.

"They have to seek pretexts, they will ridicule us, because at least half of the deputies do nothing in parliament, they are work-shy," Matovič told SITA. This is the basis on which he justifies his proposed amendment to Slovakia’s constitution, already submitted to parliament that would reduce the body’s seats from 150 to 79.
