Bratislava, March 21 (TASR) – The government of Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD) due to be appointed into office by President Andrej Kiska on Thursday (March 22) won’t receive the vote of confidence from Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) MPs in the Parliament, TASR learnt from SaS press release on Wednesday.

According to the text, SaS doesn’t believe that the new cabinet is willing and competent enough to transform Slovakia into a just state with functioning public services.

SaS maintains that the degree of hardship that the governing Smer-SD, SNS and Most-Hid parties are willing to suffer in order to cling to power is noteworthy, as is the degree of “how far they’re willing to go in their desperate effort to weather the mass resistance by the people of Slovakia”.

“The history of Smer-SD and SNS is the history of populist and anti-reform parties, the main purpose of which is to leech off public property and spread the virus of clientelism among society. Most-Hid has turned into a party aspiring to be remade in their image,” reads the text.
