Ján Slota, former head of the opposition Slovak National Party (SNS), on October 6 was elected head of the ‘Real SNS’ breakaway party at a founding congress of its 440 members, thus completing a ruinous split with current SNS chairwoman Anna Maliková. Slota, who called Maliková “a parasite”, had been thrown out of the SNS along with several other senior members in September, apparently for opposing Maliková.
