Parliamentary session cancelled over doubts about MP’s petition signature

THE OPPOSITION failed to convene a special parliamentary session to discuss the practices of financial deposit companies who lend money with excessively high interest.

THE OPPOSITION failed to convene a special parliamentary session to discuss the practices of financial deposit companies who lend money with excessively high interest.

Speaker of Parliament Pavol Paška of the ruling Smer party refused to begin the session because he did not believe that all the signatures on the petition required for the session are genuine.

MP Alojz Hlina, who initiated the petition, claimed to have submitted the proposal for the session with the necessary 30 signatures, including the signature of MP Radoslav Procházka. But Paška claims that Procházka’s signature did not match his signatures on other documents.

“I signed it with my own hand and with my own pen on the first line,” Procházka said, as qutoed by the Sme daily.

Hlina accused Paška of ignoring the parliamentary rules.

“It is an unprecedented violation of any laws,” Hlina said, as quoted by Sme, adding that on Monday he will start collecting signatures again.
