Double price displays became mandatory a week ago in Slovakia in the run-up to the introduction of the euro on 1 January next year and the demise of the Slovak koruna
But the two MEPs have clearly toughened their stance in reaction to the recent 'surprise' revaluation of the Slovak koruna (+17.
The two MEPs consider that "Slovakia had violated in a striking way the Maastricht Treaties' accession criteria to the eurozone," all the more so as the revaluation of the Slovak koruna took place one year after the initial reappreciation.
At the request of the Slovak authorities and with the approval of the European Central Bank (ECB), eurozone countries and members of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM II)(3), the Slovak koruna
has been trading, since 29 May, at 30.
At the request of the Slovak authorities, the exchange rate of the Slovak koruna
(crown) has been revalued by 8.
From a currency perspective, the US dollar weakened against most major currencies, and also against emerging market currencies such as the Thai baht, Turkish lira, Polish zloty, Russian ruble and Slovak koruna
