ANO approves documents on strategy, agenda and election

THE CURRENT political situation in Slovakia and the party’s election priorities were the main topics of the programme-related national congress of the liberal ANO party in Banská Bystrica on January 29, the TASR news agency wrote.

The congress elected a new party general secretary, Magda Krasulová, replacing Juraj Puchý, who resigned this week.

Nearly 270 delegates, representing some 5,500 party members around the country, approved three documents - the Main Theses of Strategic Development of Slovakia, the Programme Priorities of ANO, as well as the Proposal on Election Campaign Slogans.

"ANO refutes the Vatican agreements, it prefers to enable prenuptial agreements and an act on registered partnerships. We're convinced that modern society means the Internet and compulsory English instead of compulsory religious education," ANO leader Pavol Rusko said at a news conference held after the congress.
