KATARÍNA Glončáková-Golevová, the deputy chairwoman of the liberal New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party, was re-elected deputy chairwoman of the European Liberal Democrat and Reform (ELDR) party at its congress in Bratislava on September 25.

The other three ELDR deputy chairpersons elected along with Golevová by 350 delegates to the congress were Romanian Prime Minister Calin Popescu-Tariceanu, German liberal Markus Loening, and Wilfried Dersken from the Dutch liberal D66 party, the TASR news agency wrote.
