“That number is low and I think it’s a combination of several factors,” he said. On the one hand, according to him, it is true that Slovaks are used to keeping things at the last minute, on the other hand, it turns out that even the authority of the pope could not force believers to be vaccinated and could see him live.
There is a risk of embarrassment
He thinks the government will change the original strict decision. “If they don’t, we risk embarrassment. It is inconceivable to me that the Pope’s attendance in three days in Slovakia would be less than in three hours in Hungary.” underlined Hrabko. Given the Pope’s state of health, as well as the unpredictable development of the pandemic, it cannot be completely ruled out that the visit will not take place in the end.
According to Hrabek, Slovakia’s participation in the inaugural summit of the Crimean Platform in Kiev at the level of Prime Minister Eduard Heger (OĽANO) was correct. “The annexation of Crimea must always be condemned, it was a military seizure of foreign territory. Precisely because Ukraine is our neighbor, representation by the Prime Minister was adequate. “ responded to the criticism of Smer-SD leader Robert Fico, according to which there were several other states represented at a lower than prime minister’s level.

According to Hrabek, the re-proposal to convene an extraordinary session of the parliament to remove the Minister of the Interior Roman Mikulec (OĽANO) from the Smer-SD party is a natural consequence of her obstruction blocked by the coalition and the Speaker of the Parliament Boris Kollár (We are a family) at the time of the regular September meeting of the National Council of the Slovak Republic. “If the coalition obstructs in this way, the opposition will be left with nothing but to make new proposals until the meeting is held and it can be discussed in parliament,” stated. However, he expects this meeting to be postponed as well.

According to Hrabek, the Voice-SD initiative, which wants to re-enable a referendum on early elections with a proposal to change the constitution, also has a small chance of approval. He thinks that the decision of the Constitutional Court satisfies the coalition deputies. “When the Constitutional Court banned the referendum, it told deputies that they were entitled to a full four-year term and no one in parliament could get them unless they decided to do so. And who would voluntarily cut a hen that would bring him five thousand salaries every month? ” Hrabko asked.
