"Our priority is to approve the 'social law'. Then we'll hold talks with the opposition on wrapping up this session and postpone the items that haven't been discussed until the September session," said head of the governing Smer party caucus Jana Laššáková. Opposition representatives have indicated that they will not block such a proposal.
