Christian Democrats reject ANO demands

THE COALITION'S Christian Democrats (KDH) have rejected the ANO coalition party's demand that an ANO candidate be appointed to a senior post in either the Interior Ministry or the secret service in order to renew the party's trust in the country's security bodies.

The ANO demand came in response to earlier allegations that ANO boss Pavol Rusko was illegally surveyed by security institutions.

KDH representatives said the ANO demands would result in the opening of the coalition agreement and the rewriting of existing legislation. The Hungarian Coalition Party and the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union refused to comment on ANO's demands until a planned coalition meeting on February 6.
