New party registers at Interior Ministry

A NEW liberal party, Nádej (Hope), co-founded by Culture Minister František Tóth, Economy Minister Jirko Malchárek and former Deputy Health Minister Alexandra Novotná, was registered at the Interior Ministry on March 6.

The party's founding congress was to take place on March 11. It was expected that the party's statutes, election programme and statutory bodies would be approved at the congress, the SITA news agency wrote.

Nádej intends to pursue liberal policies and attract new people to politics, including successful entrepreneurs, party officials have said.

The party supports a reduction in income tax from the current 19 percent to 15 percent, simplifying the current social and health care insurance system, introducing binding deadlines for the courts, completing the health care reform, reducing red tape, and introducing equal support for all businesses.
