Left plans to unite

LEFTIST parties are pledging to unite before the next parliamentary elections.

The Slovak daily SME wrote that the leaders of the parliamentary opposition party Smer and the non-parliamentary parties the Democratic Left Party, the Social Democratic Alternative, the Social Democratic Party of Slovakia, and the Left Bloc have announced a plan to join before the 2006 elections so that "not a single left-wing vote is lost".

The exact form of the cooperation, however, still remains unclear. While Robert Fico, the leader of Smer, said that the parties should run as a single centre-left party, the chairmen of the other parties said the idea still has to be discussed.
