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.

Čarnogurský, who founded the KDH, was selected to the board on the second try and with a majority of only a single vote. The current KDH chairman, Pavol Hrušovský, supported Čarnogurský's candidacy.

Čarnogurský said he wants to heal the split in the Christian Democrats. "Although there are different opinions on some issues, the KDH should be unified on the principal issues," he said.

The party is divided between a group of pragmatists who believe it should have accepted the Smer party's offer to form a government after June elections, and idealists who believe it would have ruined the KDH.
