Smer supports the EFSF but refused to back it on Tuesday because it wanted to topple the government. Prime Minister Iveta Radicova's cabinet will remain in office in a caretaker function until a new administration is formed. The next opportunity for the parliament to vote on the EFSF expansion is Thursday afternoon.Presumably, the new administration will be after the next election, though that seems rather a long time for a caretaker administration.
The elephant in the room.
