Deputy Parliament’s Speaker Martin Glváč says that he does not want to traumatise Slovak society just before All Saints Day (when most Slovaks travel around the country to light candles on the graves of their deceased relatives and friends). This was his explanation as to why he is not going to make a final decision about his permanence in the high parliamentary post just yet.
He has been facing intense pressure from the public and particularly from the opposition to step down as deputy parliament’s speaker for over a week now. But, he decided he can stand it some more, just to make sure the autumn holidays can go undisturbed for everyone.
