Slovakia’s right wing, which won the recent general election, is dragging its feet on the euro rescue plan, reports Pravda. According to SDKÚ-DS (Slovak Democratic and Christian Union – Democratic Party) leader Iveta Radičová, who is likely to be the country’s next prime minister, the plan "is just a smokescreen to satisfy the market for the time being, and it goes to show that countries can go on behaving irresponsibly”. The plan won’t take effect unless it is ratified by every country in the eurozone.
