Turbulence within ANO calms down

THE NEW Citizen's Alliance (ANO) no longer has any dissenting platforms after party leader Pavol Rusko resolved the alleged internal problems of the liberal party by talking to the initiators of the short-lived Liberal Forum platform in the party's Trnava regional structure.

The Slovak daily Pravda wrote on December 8 that Rusko had talked to the regional party members on December 6 and, after a four-hour discussion, the problem had been resolved.

After the meeting, Viktor Béreš, head of the ANO's Trnava district party council, said that the ANO was a united party without any fractions.

He admitted, however, that inside the regional party structures, there had been a lack of discussion.
