People's Union elects first leader

AT ITS first congress, on May 3, the People's Union (ĽÚ) formed by rebels from Vladimír Mečiar's Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) elected its first leader, Vojtech Tkáč, former deputy leader of the HZDS.

The party has declared itself to be a people's party, pro-Europe, and pro-reform. Its 11 MPs will remain in parliamentary opposition, although Tkáč said he respected the current government.

Out of 130 delegates, 128 voted for Tkáč and two votes were invalid.

The ĽÚ says it will propose the establishment of a two-chamber parliament, a reduction in the number of government departments, changes to the funding of political parties, and the development of social partnership.
