If the measures to help people and protect public finances proposed by OĽANO are approved thanks to SaS, Finance Minister Igor Matovič (OĽANO) is ready to leave the government together with Richard Sulík (SaS). This was announced by Prime Minister Eduard Heger (OĽANO) before the government meeting. The government postponed the start of the negotiations, SaS should currently consult on the proposals of the OĽANO movement.

Ten demands

“We have come up with a proposal for very specific measures to help people in order to cope with the coming period, which we are pretending mainly to the SaS party, but also to the coalition partners. We need a solid coalition, we need to approve them in the government and in the parliament. If these measures are approved, Igor Matovič will accept Richard Sulík’s challenge and together with him will leave his position in the parliament.” announced the prime minister.

The ten points that contain OĽANO’s demands include 200 euros per child, the approval of the state budget for 2023, the constitutional law on budget responsibility, the stability of the pension system, financial discipline, new sources of state income, such as new tax rates on alcohol and gambling or extraordinary taxation of Russian oil. Furthermore, OĽANO talks about the freezing of electricity prices for all households, favorable gas contracts for all households, a 250 million euro allowance for gas and heat for households, and a 150 million euro allowance for pensioners.

Amendment of the coalition agreement

The Prime Minister reminded that the arguments of SaS about the disruption of public finances and the violation of the coalition agreement are not true.

“Until today, we waited in vain for one request to change the coalition agreement. The SaS is not about anything else but to get rid of Igor Matovič,” stated Minister of Defense and member of the OĽANO presidency Jaroslav Naď. He underlined that the movement has no demands towards SaS. According to him, Sulík received the movement’s counter-proposal, and if he wants to prove that he cares about the country, he will accept what the liberals in the parliament blocked for a long time.
