REPRESENTATIVES of the opposition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) have begun doubting their decision to refuse negotiations on a government of right wing parties and Vladimír Mečiar’s Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) after all.
After the June 17 elections, the KDH decided that it could not cooperate with Mečiar, but the situation has changed now that former KDH leader Ján Čarnogurský has said the KDH should have negotiated with Mečiar’s party.
The KDH’s Vladimír Palko insists, however, that the Christian democrats “should not go with Mečiar and will not go with Mečiar”.
According to Július Brocka from the KDH, however, the party “should not only give Mečiar a chance but also Smer, SNS, and other parties”, Sme wrote.
Čarnogurský considers the current situation as an opportunity for discussion and expects the KDH will return to this topic. KDH chairman Pavol Hrušovský would not comment on the issue.
