President Andrej Kiska criticised MPs for failing to turn out, saying Dubovcová deserves to be heard.
Around 13 percent of seniors need help in their households, 7-8 percent need continuous home care and 5 percent need institutional care, she said. Further, Slovakia lacks proper social worker, which is now run only by NGOs, though the state should provide it, Dubovcová reported as quoted by the SITA newswire.
“The Government, ministries and also Parliament have so far disregarded her work and findings,” Most-Hid party head Béla Bugár said, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “They’ve exposed the true face of their social policy towards the disadvantaged and marginalised groups of people.”
Kiska invited Dubovcová to discuss her findings. It is important to hear about problems she found personally, he said.
“We have to be prepared to clearly and openly discuss those problems and solve them,” Kiska said, as quoted by TASR.
