As expected, the opposition SDKÚ agreed on the nomination of former labour minister Iveta Radičová as its presidential candidate on November 13.
The SDKÚ was the first party to name its presidential candidate, the Hospodárske Noviny economic daily wrote on November 14.
Radičová accepted the nomination with wide support from her party’s members and leadership. But she will only run as a candidate in the 2009 presidential elections with approval of the whole opposition.
SDKÚ leader Mikuláš Dzurinda wants to summon the opposition council as soon as possible. He said that his party wants a change in the presidential palace.
The KDH party is expected to start negotiations with its own candidate, which is expected to be Pavol Hrušovský.
