Ružinov Council ends profitable rentals for political parties

The Local Council in Bratislava’s Ružinov district on October 7 ended the policy of offering low rents on office space to political parties.

The Local Council in Bratislava’s Ružinov district on October 7 ended the policy of offering low rents on office space to political parties.

But changing the prices would require negotiating with landlords and signing new contracts, according to Deputy Mayor Dušan Pekár, who told the SITA newswire that neither the council nor the district leadership have the authority to set rents.

The rents became an issue after a press conference by the Fair Play Alliance, which said the price qualified as a gift to the SDKÚ and Smer, who should have counted them as gifts under party financing law. SITA
