Heger cabinet is approved, but continues to wobble
Theatre shows and other performances can be staged for larger audiences as of today, a welcome change for audiences who are no longer amused or intrigued by the long-running coalition performance – which was nonetheless reprised once again last week.
Eduard Heger and his government received the confidence of parliament on Tuesday but within days the new prime minister faced a set of issues that may yet prove existential for his government: pressure on the justice minister, problems affecting the smallest coalition party, Za Ľudí, and vague but potentially momentous musings by Igor Matovič on the subject of tax reform.
