Bratislava, August 7 (TASR) – Slovak National Party (SNS) leader and Parliamentary Chair Andrej Danko will explain his withdrawal from the coalition agreement at the Government Office on Tuesday (August 8), TASR learnt on Monday.

A meeting of the coalition partners has been convened by Prime Minister Robert Fico (Smer-SD), who views Danko’s move as absurd. “He [Fico] expects that the SNS chair will explain to his partners an absurd decision by the Slovak National Party that doesn’t introduce peace and stability into society,” said the prime minister’s spokesperson Beatrice Szaboova. She added that Smer-SD will act responsibly towards voters and the country as a whole at the session.
