Oct. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Slovakia’s ruling coalition leaders failed to reach an agreement before Parliament’s lawmakers vote on a euro-area bailout plan.

Prime Minister Iveta Radicova and Bela Bugar, the head of junior coalition member the Most Party, told reporters in Bratislava today that political leaders will meet again tomorrow to solve a dispute that threatens to delay the euro region’s approval of the European Financial Stability Facility.
