Far-right ĽSNS wants to restore Slovak sovereignty

The party claims Slovakia is still not a sovereign country, and has submitted a proposal to constitutionally restore sovereignty of the Slovak Republic that was allegedly lost in the wake of the country’s joining the EU in 2004.

ĽSNS intends to restore sovereignty by removing a sentence from the Slovak Constitution that reads: “Legally binding acts of the European Communities and the European Union take precedence over laws of the Slovak Republic.” According to the party, sovereignty represents one of the most fundamental constitutional principles, on which Slovakia must be buttressed.

"Its importance is evidenced also by the fact that it is enshrined in the very first article, first paragraph and first sentence of the Slovak Constitution,” argues the party, as quoted by the TASR newswire. ĽSNS emphasises that the Slovak state must not be subject to the interests and will of other states or international organisations.

“The practical meaning of sovereignty stems from the fact that only Slovak citizens and their elected representatives have the right to decide to which laws they will be committed, what rights and responsibilities they will have and how their mutual legal relations will be set,” reads the proposal.
