Kaník's Democratic Party to merge with SDKÚ

THE EXECUTIVE of the Democratic Party (DS) on October 6 decided that the party would merge with the ruling Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ). The merger must be approved by special congresses of both parties, the news agency TASR wrote.

According to the DS, the party is interested in a partnership with the strongest governing party, and is resolved to keep intact its statutes, programme and aims.

The DS executive also discussed the decision of DS Chairman Ľudovít Kaník to resign from his post as minister of labour, social affairs and family. The party expressed support for him, and did not suggest anyone to replace him.
