The non-parliamentary party Progressive Slovakia (PS) will no longer support the current government. This was stated at the briefing by Michal Šimečka, Chairman of the Parliament and Vice-President of the European Parliament. According to him, the anti-inflation package of Igor Matovič (OĽANO) in the National Council (NR) of the Slovak Republic was approved as a turning point of this coalition on Tuesday (May 24). According to Šimeček, this government can no longer automatically rely on the support and voice of the PS if its appeal is “on the table”. “On Tuesday, the National Council of the Slovak Republic approved another megalomaniacal idea by Igor Matovič, this time for more than one billion euros a year. For us, Progressive Slovakia, this is a real turning point. His style of politics leads to the disintegration of public finances, indebtedness to generations ahead, the liquidation of local governments, the rape of the legislative process, as well as the Constitution of the Slovak Republic, “said Šimečka. According to him, the state cannot be run like a vaccination lottery, one person cannot blackmail the whole country for another two years. “Today he passed this, no one knows what will be in a month and a half. The risk is really too great. Every other day the circus of Igor Matovič rehabilitates Robert Fico (Smer-SD) and increases the risk of his return,” Šimečka underlined. that the PS has so far been a constructive opposition that has supported key coalition reforms through its non-attached MP Tomáš Valášek. “Igor Matovic’s package is a megalomaniacal, ill-conceived one-man plan that has made up the whole country and ignores professional consensus, whether it’s about inflation or family support. Lucia Plaváková, Vice President and PS Chancellor. “What we saw in parliament on Tuesday was nothing more, nothing less than the emergence of a new political majority, made up of the worst part of the current coalition and the worst possible part of the parliamentary opposition. OĽANO and We are a family today are clearly and explicitly in one This coalition is absolutely unacceptable to me, “added Tomáš Valášek, vice-chairman of the PS and a non-attached member of the National Council of the Slovak Republic. According to the vice-president of the PS Michal Truban, Igor Matovič is “the biggest harm in Slovak politics, the biggest harm for Slovakia”. “Matovic and Fico are actually the same. They are both destroying the Slovak economy, our country, destroying democracy, violating and destroying the rule of law and voting with the fascists. I am 100 percent convinced that even the anti-corruption Matovic line is not honest, and that is “Truban added.”
