No Evidence Slovakia Rejected WHO Pandemic Treaty!
Let’s take a closer look at what this WHO Pandemic Treaty is all about, and why there’s no evidence Slovakia has actually rejected it!
Fact #1 : WHO Pandemic Treaty Has Not Been Finalised
Let me start by pointing out that the WHO Pandemic Treaty is still not finalised, with the deadline to conclude negotiations extended to May 2024. That is when the final WHO Pandemic Treaty is expected to be submitted to the 77th World Health Assembly for its approval.
Until then, there is no actual WHO Pandemic Treaty for Slovakia or any other country to accept or reject, which makes the delight of the anti-vaccine / conspiracy theory crowd… premature ejaculation at best.
Fact #2 : Robert Fico Did Not Outright Reject WHO Pandemic Treaty
Robert Fico is a politician, and like all politicians, they have a way of speaking in a way that offers a way out. So we have to examine carefully what he said.
Here is the English translation that can be seen in the video above:
If you carefully read what he said, you will realise that Robert Fico never actually said that he was rejecting the WHO Pandemic Treaty. He only said that the SMER party will not support expanding the powers of the WHO, at the expense of the state’s right to tackle future pandemics.
In other words, it very much sounds like he’s okay with WHO gaining more powers, as long as Slovakia still retains the right to tackle future pandemics its own way. And that brings us to this next point…

Fact #4 : WHO Pandemic Treaty Does Not Affect Sovereignty!
If you download and read the zero draft, you will realise that it clearly states in Pages 10 and 11 that countries like Slovakia will continue to have the right to “determine and manage” their own healthcare initiatives, including how to tackle future pandemics.
Unless the new Prime Minister of Slovakia did not read the Zero Draft before making that comment, it is likely that Robert Fico was well aware that the WHO Pandemic Treaty will not affect Slovakia’s sovereignty. In other words – he wouldn’t be breaking his word, if Slovakia eventually ratifies the WHO Pandemic Treaty!
Fact #5 : WHO Pandemic Treaty Must Be Ratified By Member Countries
Even if the final WHO Pandemic Treaty is adopted in the 77th Health Assembly in May 2024, it must still be ratified by each individual country. This is clearly stated in Article 33(1) with my emphasis in bold:

Fact #6 : Robert Fico Only Said SMER Will Vote Against Treaty
Robert Fico never actually said that his government will reject the WHO Pandemic Treaty. In fact, his government lacks the power to ratify such treaties.
In the viral video, he even pointed out that it is the National Council that will ultimately decide on whether to ratify the WHO Pandemic Treat, which conveniently offers him (and the SMER party) a way out.
In short – his statement that SMER and its MPs won’t agree to the WHO Pandemic Treaty is rather “toothless”, as they only won 42 seats (28%) out of 150 seats in the National Council. As long as a majority of Slovak MPs vote to ratify the treaty, it will be adopted regardless of what SMER or Robert Fico says.
