Ex-PM not planning to leave for Brussels

MIKULÁŠ Dzurinda, Slovakia's former PM and the leader of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), will again run for the post of party chairman at an upcoming party congress on November 17.

"I want to lead our party to success in the next parliamentary elections," Dzurinda said.

At the same time, Dzurinda denied information that he had received an offer of the post of high EU representative for common foreign and security policy.
