SaS backs down on campaign promise

Richard Sulík, the head of the Freedom and Solidarity-SaS ruling coalition party says he will be unable to fulfil a promise made to Igor Matovič the leader of the Ordinary People faction of his party to include their priorities on coalition’s agenda after the first year in power.

“We have no plan currently to update the agenda. There is nothing to discuss,” head of SaS parliamentary caucus Jozef Kollár said as quoted by the Sme daily in its Wednesday, July 6, issue. Matovič promised that Ordinary People will not give up on the crucial issues and will continue to pressure them through in form of parliamentary proposals and amendments to bills. Soon after last year’s general elections, Sulik signed the agreement with four OP MPs when they threatened to deny support to the government’s agenda unless certain proposals were included in it. But only few days later, Sulík backed down on his own promise. Prime Minister Iveta Radičová (Slovak democratic and Christian Union-SDKÚ) stated then that it would be impossible to change the already-completed government programme.
