EP Speaker Cox feels abused by SDKÚ

SPEAKER of European Parliament Pat Cox feels he was abused in the campaign of the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) party. Upon his arrival in Slovakia, Cox received a programme that included a meeting with voters. However, he did not know that it was an event for the SDKÚ, the daily SME wrote.

On June 1 at Bratislava's Polus City Centre, Cox attended a SDKÚ election rally together with party chairman and Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda and SDKÚ candidate for European Parliament Peter Šťastný.

Pavol Hrušovský, a Christian Democrat and Slovak parliamentary speaker also feels that Cox's visit was misused by a political party.

Chairman of the New Citizen's Alliance Pavol Rusko was also surprised that Cox, who is a leader of the European Liberal Democrats, was campaigning for a conservative party.

"They took him at the airport and told him that he was going to meet the voters, but these voters were only partisans of the SDKÚ," Rusko told the news wire SITA.

Dzurinda rejected the accusations, saying "I invited him to a meeting with the citizens and he accepted."
