Prime Minister attacks SaS
Richard Sulík, leader of the coalition party SaS, has until Sunday evening to come up with his plan to reduce the Covid-19 case load. If he does, he will lead the government’s efforts in fighting the pandemic. This is how PM Igor Matovič (OĽaNO) responded to Sulík condemning his idea that restaurants, gyms and churches should test people for Covid-19 instead of the state. Sulík is still pushing for regional measures and easing up restrictions in Bratislava and other regions with a low incidence of Covid-19. Matovič also attacked SaS MP Jana Cigániková―he says she lobbies hard for Penta’s interests, is not a coalition MP and the coalition is just enduring her as head of the parliament’s health committee. She caused Matovič’s ire by disagreeing with the state’s new €98m subsidy for the state health insurer VšZP.
