Šimko plans opinion platform in SDKÚ

THE EX-DEFENSE Minister and former deputy chairman of the ruling Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), Ivan Šimko, has called a group of SDKÚ politicians to meet on November 16 and discuss the possible creation of an opinion platform inside the party.

Šimko was recalled from both a ministerial and the party vice-chief posts after he refused to support the recall of former head of the National Security Office (NBÚ) at the start of October.

The party's top bodies will also discuss internal SDKÚ problems, but Šimko has refused to participate in the meeting.

"First they shoot a person out and then they want to discuss," Šimko said to the Pravda daily.
