In a rare moment of unity, 124 MPs from Slovakia's 150-member Parliament voted for a constitutional amendment on Thursday, granting Parliament the power to revoke presidential pardons and amnesties if they are in discrepancy with the principles of the democratic rule of law. This was undertaken in an effort to finally revoke the amnesties issued by Vladimir Mečiar, an act which could come to fruition as early as next week, said Parliamentary Chair Andrej Danko (Slovak National Party). He added that this partly hinges on cooperation from President Andrej Kiska. "Next week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be the days on which this matter will be resolved as long as we have cooperation from the President's Office. I'm confident that we can also manage the legislative process procedure-wise," said Danko at a press conference.
