Deputy leader leaves ANO

The deputy leader of the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO), Imrich Béreš, has decided to leave politics in favour of a job in the private sector.

Béreš told the daily SME: "I come from a business environment and I feel better there than in politics."

Analysts decribe Béreš as being from the liberal wing of the party and add that his presence will be missed as a counterpoint to leader Pavol Rusko. ANO boss himself was keen to point out that Béreš was leaving politics first and ANO second, after receiving several offers from foreign and domestic companies.

SME also reported that Economy Minister Róbert Nemcsics was also considering leaving ANO, possibly to join Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda's party, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ). Nemcsics refused to confirm or deny the claim.
