The government of Prime Minister Iveta Radičová is three times more active in fighting corruption than the previous government of Robert Fico, the SITA newswire wrote on Wednesday, July 13. During the first year of the current government, parliament adopted ten bills and amendments that contributed positively to narrowing the space for corruption.

These results come from the assessment of anti-corruption legislation measures passed during the first year of the current parliament. It was assessed by 13 experts and organised by the non-governmental organisation Transparency International Slovensko (TIS). By comparison, the previous government adopted only three anti-corruption measures in its first year.
