ANO deputies let down opponents of Rusko

The New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) parliamentary caucus demonstrated its loyalty to ANO boss Pavol Rusko whose position has been shaky and proposed to withdraw Economy Minister Robert Nemcsics and State Secretary of the Ministry of Transportation Branislav Opaterný from the cabinet, the daily SME reported.

"I cannot imagine further cooperation with them," Rusko said after an informal meeting bringing together those firmly standing behind Rusko. Nemcsics and Opaterný have been increasingly critical of Rusko's authoritarian management of ANO.

Nemcsics has not been officially told that Rusko does not trust him anymore. "If anyone starts a discussion [about problems] either through the media or within the party, they become unwanted in ANO," Nemcsics said and restated that the party is torn by conflicts.
