Six SNS politicians booted out

The central committee of the opposition Slovak National Party (SNS) yesterday ejected six senior party members from its ranks, including former SNS boss Ján Slota, apparently for their open opposition to current party leader Anna Malíková. Parliament is to decide today whether the ejections mean the de facto elimination of the SNS parliamentary caucus, which technically now does not have enough members to function.
