The opposition parties have collected the 30 signatures required to convene an extraordinary parliamentary session in which they plan to discuss unemployment, the TASR newswire learned on Tuesday, April 9.

The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) vice-chairman Ivan Štefanec said that the fact that the opposition collected the signatures within two days is a sign that the parties are able to cooperate. He announced that the signatures will be submitted to Parliamentary Chairman Pavol Paška later this week. The proposal on convening the extraordinary meeting was backed by MPs from the SDKÚ, Most-Híd, Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) and Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), while Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) was represented by deputy parliamentary speaker Erika Jurinová. The governing Smer party’s caucus leader Jana Laššáková described the initiative as a propaganda effort, as parliament is scheduled to debate a report on unemployment at the regularly scheduled session in May.
