Reader feedback: NDI 'in full compliancewith law'

Re: US funds aided political parties, By Lukáš Fila, Vol 8, no 44, Nov 18 to 24

Dear Madam

The National Democratic Institute has provided training and seminars in Slovakia in full compliance with Slovak law, in cooperation with such civic groups as Memo '98, Civic Eye, the Trenčín Informal Association, Citizens in Action, the Prešov Civic Forum, and Roma civic groups, women political party activists and young activists in party youth wings - all of whom have used NDI training and seminars with only one purpose in mind: to make the Slovak political system more representative, participatory, transparent and accountable. Our partners in Slovakia wholeheartedly espouse and practice those values, and we proudly salute their work in contributing to Slovakia's democratic transition.
