Ján Čarnogurský returns to politics

THE FORMER leader of the Christian Democrats (KDH), Ján Čarnogurský, has returned to the party's board of chairmen. The KDH council decided on new board members on October 14. In addition to Čarnogurský, ex-MP Peter Muránsky was also selected to the board of chairmen.

The founder of the KDH, Čarnogurský, was selected to the board on the second try and with just a single-vote majority. The current KDH Chairman, Pavol Hrušovský, supported Čarnogurský's candidacy.

Čarnogurský said he wants to connect the two wings of Christian Democrats. "Although there are different opinions about some issues, the KDH should be unified on the principal issues," he said. He had said before that he would not be interested in the post of KDH chairman.
