Members of the parliament’s EU affairs committee called on their fellow MP, Ľuboš Blaha of Smer, to apologise to President Zuzana Čaputová following a public gathering in Nitra that saw the crowd chant sexual slurs against the president.
The opposition party Smer organised a public gathering to mark May 1 festivities in Nitra. During his address to the crowd of approximately 2,000, according to the TASR newswire, Blaha riled up the crowd, breaking into an obscene chant involving a sexual slur aimed at the president.
The incident was captured on video, widely shared on social networks over the past days and which prompted a highly critical reaction among the public as well as many politicians.
