HZDS to look for new name

THE OPPOSITION party led by the controversial three-time former prime minister Vladimír Mečiar has announced that it will discuss a new name at the upcoming party summit in June this year.

The deputy chairman of the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), Sergej Kozlík, said that the plans were in no way an attempt to escape the party's controversial history but rather a tool to helping his party gain new political allies.

Under HZDS rule in early 1990s, and later between 1994 and 1998, Slovakia was taken into international isolation. The autocratic practices of Mečiar and his cabinet ministers are widely believed to be responsible.
