BRATISLAVA (SITA) -- Opposition parties have collected 46 signatures to summon a special session once again, Christian-Democratic Movement Vice-Chair Ivan Šimko told SITA. The session should feature one point: confirming deputy mandates to Emil Spišák and František Gaulieder according to the pertinent verdicts of the Constitutional Court. Speaker of Parliament Ivan Gašparovič, at the request of 30 opposition deputies summoned the session for February 20, however, Slovak parliamentary deputies did not agree on the program of the 38th session, and it ended a couple of minutes after it started. From the 136 deputies present, 58 voted for the program, 70 turned it down, and 2 did not vote. The point of the Spisak case is that the Slovak National Party (SNS) did not propose then east Slovakia candidate Spišák, who received the most preferential votes, to substitute for the deceased Bartolomej Kunc, but it selected Ladislav Hruška instead. He placed 13th on the SNS list of candidates and did not collect the necessary 10 percent share of SNS votes in the region that would empower him to take a seat in the Parliament. Already in the autumn of 1997, the Constitutional Court ruled that by stripping František Gaulieder of his mandate, the Slovak Parliament violated his constitutional right to give up his mandate freely and also violated Article 81 of the Slovak Constitution, which defines how a parliamentary mandate may terminate. Gaulieder, a deputy who quit the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia Parliamentary faction, was stripped of his seat in parliament on the basis of a resignation letter he says he never sent.
