The new bloc will be named the United Workers' Party of Labour (ZRSP), representatives of the four parties agreed at a meeting in Nové Zámky on September 21.

The new party will unite the Left Bloc of former politician Jozef Kalman, the ROSA party, led by Miroslav Kočnár, the B-Revolutionary Workers' Party, and the Independent Civic Party of the Unemployed and Damaged. All parties failed to reach a necessary quorum to enter parliament in the most recent national elections.
