A member of the Slovak Parliament, Zsolt Simon, has left the parliamentary club of his Party of Hungarian Coalition (SMK) on April 14, reported the TASR newswire.

“I announce the end of my membership in the SMK. I also give up all my positions in this party – the chairman of the regional organisation in the Banská Bystrica region, the chairman of the district organisation in Rimavská Sobota and my membership in the Republican Council of the SMK,” he told a press conference on the same day.

Simon said for TASR that he had made this step after a long and thorough assessment of all circumstances. He will enhance the number of independent MPs.
