ANOTHER deputy of Pavol Rusko's ruling party, the New Citizen’s Alliance (ANO), has announced his departure, the daily SME wrote.
Jozef Banáš, the fifth top official to leave the party since parliamentary elections, said that it has greatly deviated from its initial policy line.
According to Banáš, the party placed morally and professionally unfit people on their candidate list for the European Parliament.
Banáš especially objected to the candidacy of Jozef Heriban, whom he considers the source of the party's decay, and called him "an unqualified representative of immoral politics".
Banáš intends to perform as an independent MP and support the government's programme.
