The group of rebels led by Vojtech Tkáč that left the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) last month have formed a new political party called the People's Union (Ľudová únia - ĽÚ).
Tkáč said they would have a different programme from that of the HZDS, and would not resort to internal authoritarian methods, which the rebels stated as their main reason for leaving the HZDS.
