Power struggle within KDH

OPPOSITION Christian Democrats Chairman Pavol Hrušovský has acknowledged that a leadership power struggle is underway in the KDH, but says there is "no danger of a rift" in the party.

"Most of the members support the leadership of the KDH," he said after a December 9 meeting of senior KDH officials in Modra to evaluate the party's gains in local elections held December 2.

Hrušovský said that five former members of the KDH presidium - Vladimír Palko, Daniel Lipšic, Pavol Minárik, František Mikloško, and Rudolf Bauer - have a different opinion of what the party's policy should be. "A power struggle for the KDH has started," he said.

Former Interior Minister Vladimír Palko, who resigned as deputy party chairman after elections in June, told journalists after the meeting that the KDH council was divided. While many members are critical of Prime Minister Robert Fico, they still have misgivings about the refusal of the rebel group to join a government with the Smer party.
