Vladimir Palko proposes isolating SMK

MP Vladimír Palko of the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) suggested that the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) and KDH stop meeting with their third opposition partner, the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK), for a couple of months. He said that in this way the KDH and the SDKÚ would have time to observe SMK politics under its new leadership.

Palko has serious reservations toward the new SMK head, Pál Csáky. He objected to the way Csáky won the chairmanship at the party congress last weekend. He stressed that he objected to the way in which Csáky won, not the fact that he won at all. He referred to information leaked from the SMK congress, that alleges that Csáky gained delegates’ support by pointing to the fact that incumbent chairman Béla Bugár has a better relationship with Slovaks than he does.

Csáky sees Palko's statements as part of his election campaign to become the next KDH chairman in June.
