KDH celebrates 15 years

THE RULING Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) party, which is one of the few parties to have survived since the fall of Communism in 1989, celebrated its 15th birthday on February 17, 2005.

In a speech to mark the occasion, KDH chairman Pavol Hrušovský characterized the party as always adhering to its principles and possessing foresight, the TASR news agency wrote.

According to Hrušovský, the KDH has always striven for truth and justice, and has stuck to core issues regardless of public opinion.

Quoting KDH founder Jan Čarnogurský, he called party members "long-distance runners".

Hrušovský said that the party had been established on strong principles, as its founders had fought for truth and justice during the communist era.
