Dzurinda wants fight for party lead

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda has rejected an offer from his Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) party executive that he automatically become the party’s election team leader in the run-up to September 2002 scheduled elections, saying he prefers that a contest be held in March among all SDKÚ politicians interested in the post. But SDKÚ figures considered as possible candidates to replace Dzurinda – Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan, Interior Minister Ivan Šimko and Deputy Prime Minister for Economy Ivan Mikloš – have all said recently they are not interested.
