Hrušovský reelected KDH leader

Pavol Hrušovský was unanimously reelected as the leader of the Christian Democrats (KDH) at their party congress in Spišská nova ves on April 5.

The congress also confirmed František Mikloško as their presidential candidate. The unmarried Mikloško, who has faced many questions about who would be his first lady if he were elected, was given a heart-shaped cake at the end of the meeting.

He thanked his colleagues and said: "This will be my last statement on the theme of the first lady. I now have a wedding cake, I'm only missing a bride."

Ján Figeľ, the minister responsible for the campaign in the run-up to the referendum on EU entry, was selected as KDH candidate for the first Slovak EU commissioner.
