"The goal that we set in connection with this has been fulfilled and we evaluate this result as positive," he said. He added that the KSS is realistic when it comes to the presidential election. "We're aware of our qualities, as well as our limits."

Sidor said that the number of collected signatures was a sign that the Communist Party can rise from the ashes. Hrdlička acknowledged that the KSS is participating mainly to make use of the media time that the presidential race offers. TASR
