Opposition People's Union deputy Ladislav Polka who left the opposition Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) earlier this year might join the ruling New Citizen Alliance (ANO). He says that some of his party colleagues might follow him as well, SME daily reports.
ANO boss Pavol Rusko would not be against their membership. However, he suggested that ANO will not open its doors for other Ľudová únia (ĽÚ) members like Polka who are interested.
Recently, ĽÚ and ANO have held talks on supporting the ANO-made draft revision to the abortion law.
The media is speculating about whether Miroslav Abelovský, Jozef Brhel, Jozef Elsner and Gustáv Krajči are planning to join ANO. They would strengthen Pavol Rusko's position within his party.
