ANO to focus on middle class

The New Citizen’s Alliance (ANO) has announced its party programme for the second half of the election term. The programme will chiefly concentrate on state employees, doctors, teachers, scientists and tradesmen, the news agency SITA wrote.

The party’s priorities through 2006 include the creation of twelve industrial parks and 80,000 new jobs. ANO leaders also want to increase the number of households equipped with an Internet connection by 300,000.

"These are concrete and measurable goals. We will make a countdown before the parliamentary elections," said ANO boss Pavol Rusko. Rusko estimates the party's electoral support at 10 to 12 percent.
