... As SDĽ implodes

Three members of the SDĽ held simultaneous meetings on October 13 in Bratislava and offered three different stances, the Pravda daily reported. Chairman Peter Weiss warned the ruling coalition could be leading the country toward an authoritarian regime, while Robert Fico said he was glad the SDĽ had disappointed the KDH by not participating in the opposition parties' meeting that followed the parliamentary special session. Another party member, Ľubomír Fogas, attacked the DU. The party's council issued a statement saying the SDĽ "does not want to and cannot be in a homogenous opposition camp."
