KDH renegades to register new party this week

The Conservative Democrats of Slovakia (KDS) will probably register their party at the Interior Ministry this week. They have all the necessary documents, including 10,000 signatures, as required to register a political party. Pavol Minárik, a former KDH MP and co-founder of the new party, said he considers the months spent collecting the signatures a good experience, the SITA newswire wrote. The fact that they managed to gain the required signatures means, according to Minárik, that people are interested in this kind of party.

Former prominent members of the opposition Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) - Vladimír Palko, Pavol Minárik, František Mikloško and Rudolf Bauer - left the KDH on February 21 after becoming disillusioned with it. All four have remained independent MPs until now.

The main principles of the new party will be respect for traditional values, patriotism enriched by all the values that cooperation and coexistence with other nations and cultures involves, and economic policy toward families. SITA
