PM alters party list after congress approves it

Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda has changed the list of candidates approved by members of his SDKÚ party for fall elections, switching two candidates and forcing the move through the party leadership organ.

Libuš Martinčeková, who had been elected at a party congress to 16th position on the 150-candidate list, was switched at the PM’s insistence with Peter Bódy, who occupied 23rd place. Dzurinda later claimed he had found evidence of “lobbying and political deals” in Martinčeková’s election, although she denied the accusation.
