Bratislava, March 10 (TASR) – Following the return of chairman of Most-Hid junior coalition party Bela Bugar from vacation, the top party leadership met at the Parliament building to officially open a debate about the lingering political crisis in Slovakia, TASR learnt on Saturday.

Upon his touch down, Bugar told journalists that he can chart three possible scenarios, but declined to elaborate in greater detail.

“Let’s not speculate, we haven’t had talks with Smer-SD yet. We’ve got three options we’ll propose to our partners and see how they respond,” claimed Bugar.

When the journalists inquired about the timing of his vacation in the middle of the political crisis, Bugar replied that he had planned his trip for a long time. “One time in 28 years we took a trip with my wife across the pond, if I may put it this way, and even then I had to shorten it by two days,” he stated.

Shortly after the murders of journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kusnirova, Most-Hid articulated its demand for Interior Minister Robert Kalinak (Smer-SD) to step down. The final verdict on the future of Most-Hid in the coalition is slated to be taken at the party Presidium session next week and it is to be preceded by a Coalition Council session.
