At the press conference, recently re-elected party leader Jan Slota predicted that the new government would not last even a year, giving it until next summer or autumn at the latest. He said that any government that increases excise tax on beer would not last long.
Although being as critical as possible about the steps of the new government of Iveta Radicova, Slota claimed he had been merciful in his judgement as most of the cabinet MPs “breathed in Slovak”.
One thing Slota does support, though, is the proposal of culture minister Daniel Krajcer to merge the public radio and TV broadcasters. The SNS is against the proposed changes to the state language act and the amendment to the law on citizenship.
