Smer expels Privilégium representatives from party

Prime Minister Robert Fico's Smer party plans to expel Štěpánka Mádlová and Miroslav Mečíř from the party. They are the statutory representatives of the Privilégium non-governmental organisation, which has been at the centre of an ongoing controversy involving the Labour Ministry.

The party decided to act after the Labour Ministry confirmed that the representatives lied in their application for a ministry subsidy, Smer spokeswoman Katarína Kližanová Rýsová told the SITA newswire.

"Both will be expelled in accordance with party statutes, since they have damaged the reputation of Smer with their behavior," she said.
