HZDS remains associate member of EDP

Vladimír Mečiar's HZDS party was on June 6 accepted as an associate member of the European Democratic Party (EDP). This gives it the right to vote and participate in activities of this European Parliament faction, HZDS vice-chairman Milan Urbáni said at the party's national executive session in Brusno spa on June 7.

This gives it the right to vote and participate in activities of this European Parliament faction, HZDS vice-chairman Milan Urbáni said at the party's national executive session in Brusno spa on June 7.

Urbáni explained that this status means that HZDS MEPs don't automatically become members of the ALDE (the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe), but they can ask for membership individually.

The EDP on June 6 could have decided to accept HZDS as a fully-fledged member, but maintained its status as an observer. TASR
