Mečiar resigns his HZDS membership
13 Dec 2013 Flash News
Three-time Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar terminated his membership in the Movement for Democratic Slovakia-HZDS on December 12 – a party he founded and chaired since 1991.
Mečiar founded the party in 1991, was then three times a prime minister (the last term in 1994-1998). He failed in the 1999 and 2004 in presidential elections, and then played a supporting role in a coalition government emerging from the 2006 election.
The current leadership was reluctant to comment on Mečiar’s words, but MEP Sergej Kozlík, onetime right-hand man of Mečiar, refuted the allegations. Some party members welcomed Mečiar’s leaving, commenting that this should have happened long ago. The party is plagued by debts, stemming back from Mečiar’s times.
The party is beset by financial problems, does not have a functional website anymore, and has moved it out of its famous residence on Tomášikova street in Bratislava, Sme added.
