Sulík comments on votes of SaS MPs on Building Savings Act

The negative votes of five MPs from the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) which led to the defeat of an amendment to the Act on Building Savings on October 19 that had been previously vetoed by President Ivan Gašparovič were not part of a deliberate plan, SaS chairman Richard Sulík told journalists, as reported by the TASR newswire. "I regret this and I assure our partners that it wasn't deliberate. We'll discuss the shortfall caused in the state budget with Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš," said Sulík, as quoted by TASR.

The SaS chief added that although his party has a heavy heart over the behaviour of its former coalition partners it continues to act in a constructive manner and observes agreements.

"Nevertheless, sometimes shit happens," said Sulík in English.

Parliament cannot discuss the law again until at least six months have passed and that will be after the early parliamentary elections on March 10.
