Parliament approves new MP caucus

PARLIAMENT approved February 25 the formation of a caucus of independent MPs comprised of a group of 11 rebels from the opposition Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) and chaired by Vojtech Tkáč.

The formation of the new caucus was supported by 107 out of 138 MPs present, 30 MPs voted against and one abstained.

Besides Tkáč, the new caucus includes Miroslav Abelovský (caucus deputy chairman), Jozef Brhel, Jozef Elsner, Ján Gabriel, Ján Mikolaj, Ivan Kiňo, Gustáv Krajči, Igor Pinkava, Ladislav Polka, and Rudolf Žiak.

The Tkáč-led rebels left the HZDS caucus in protest at the authoritative leadership of the party's chairman Vladimír Mečiar, which they claim led the party to political isolation both at home and abroad. Their decision was followed by expulsion from the HZDS.
