IN SHORT

Čarnogurský calls it quits

JÁN Čarnogurský, former head of the parliamentary Christian Democratic Party (KDH), will not be on his party's candidate list in the autumn elections, but his brother Ivan and wife Marta will run instead.

Čarnogurský, who founded the KDH after the 1989 fall of communism, is planning to work as a lawyer after the next elections.

In other coalition parties, similar changes are on the way. The daily Pravda reported that current Economy Minister Ľubomír Harach, Culture Minister Milan Kňažko, and Health Minister Roman Kováč, all members of Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda's Slovak Christian Democratic Union (SDKÚ), will not be on the SDKÚ's 150-member candidate list.
