Government approved its manifesto
The government approved its manifesto focused on fighting corruption, improving the business environment, and balancing the state budget by 2024 without raising taxes. Some sole traders will pay a flat fee instead of income tax and a payroll levy, two existing regulations will be eliminated for each new one and 1 and 2-cent coins will be canceled. The government will consider a return to flat tax, a reduction in VAT on tourism services, and an increase in income tax for monopolies. It wants tougher property declarations for politicians and judges, and a new special court to deal with judges’ misdeeds. Whistleblowers should receive 50% of reported bribes. The government intends to engage in massive housing construction, letting them at below-market rents without increasing public debts and deficits. It wants to build two new hospitals, define basic care and health co-insurance, reduce funding for abortions, and increase nurses' wages. It will set up a new Ministry for Investments, Regional Development, and IT. It will tighten regulation of betting firms, restricting its ads and banning gaming parlors near bus and train stations. Meal vouchers will be voluntary for employers. Public institutions will stop all asset forfeitures. The government will publish a free newspaper promoting its achievements, delivering it to all households. The manifesto also contains almost all issues from the OĽaNO campaign web survey; e.g., a 10% discount on state services for those who voted in general election and oncological operations within 14 days. However, it does not reduce the referendum quorum.
