PM Radicova and her predecessor Fico don’t see eye to eye
Prime Minister Iveta Radicova failed to reach an agreement with former PM and Smer-SD party leader Robert Fico yesterday, 29 July, over the opposition’s support for several constitutional acts, including the one aimed at narrowing down MP immunity.
The new government needs some support from the opposition because at least 90 lawmakers are required to endorse constitutional laws. Radicova was therefore forced to call the meeting as it does not have the necessary majority in parliament.
there was no press conference after the meeting as planned, but head of communications for Fico’s Smer-DS party, Erik Tomas, issued a press release later explaining that Fico saw no point in discussing the constitutional law as it would constitute part of the upcoming referendum in September anyway, and so he will wait till then.
