EP's UEN faction condemns criticism of SNS

THE UNION for a Europe of Nations (UEN), a grouping of nationalist and mainly euro-skeptic parties in the European Parliament (EP), condemned the recent criticism directed against the Slovak National Party (SNS), a member of the new Slovak government.

UEN co-president Cristiana Muscardini views the criticism of SNS as offensive, TASR wrote.

"It's the voters and not a limited circle of elite groups, biased journalists, and political rivals who always decide on the quality and destiny of political parties in a general election. In addition, it's normal that every political party should behave responsibly to its voters and to its country's citizens. A party has to show by its policies that it is able to protect democratic principles and respect human dignity," reads the UEN statement.

Muscardini believes that the SNS will defend these principles not only in the Slovak government but also in Europe.

SNS spokesman Rafael Rafaj has expressed his party's appreciation for the UEN statement.
