Slovak Prime Minister Iveta Radičová has cancelled her participation in an informal summit of Visegrad Group prime ministers scheduled in Prague on October 14, the SITA newswire reported.
The Government Office told SITA newswire that Radičová decided not to travel to the meeting because of the political situation in Slovakia after the failed vote on the European Financial Stability Facility and the fall of the governing coalition.
Radičová is scheduled to meet with Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič on Friday morning. The president is expected to accept the resignation of the cabinet but authorise it to govern until the early parliamentary election slated for March 10.
