Dzurinda: Don’t air SKDÚ’s dirty laundry

The leadership of the SDKÚ-DS party agreed unanimously on March 3 that they would stop airing the party’s dirty laundry, SDKÚ chairman Mikuláš Dzurinda said.

The leadership of the SDKÚ-DS party agreed unanimously on March 3 that they would stop airing the party’s dirty laundry, SDKÚ chairman Mikuláš Dzurinda said.

"People don’t deserve be entertained by us," he said.

Dzurinda used this as a basis to decline comment on the status of SDKÚ vice-chairman Juraj Liška, who recently called on Dzurinda to step down.

The leadership's session focused on the recent moves of the Government and discussed how the Opposition can cooperate.

Its members concurred that there is a deepening crisis involving cronyism in public service authorities, with Dzurinda especially pointing to the tenders at the Interior and Defense Ministries that went to friends of government. The leadership also welcomed the decision of fellow opposition party the KDH, which on March 1 said that it might support the possible joint presidential candidacy of SKDU vice-chair Iveta Radičová.
