Deputy chair of Christian Democratic party stands down after EP elections

Martin Fronc, the deputy chairman of Slovakia’s Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), who was at the top of the party's candidate list for the European Parliament but who was not elected, announced that is stepping down from party leadership, the SITA newswire reported on June 8.

Martin Fronc, the deputy chairman of Slovakia’s Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), who was at the top of the party's candidate list for the European Parliament but who was not elected, announced that is stepping down from party leadership, the SITA newswire reported on June 8.

“I have announced my personal decision to the KDH leadership today,” said Fronc, as reported by SITA.

He said his reason is the outcome of the European Parliament race in which Anna Záborská, slated third and Miroslav Mikolášik, slated fourth place on the KDH candidate list, received more votes that Fronc and made it to the European Parliament because of the preferential votes cast by KDH voters.

This will be each successful candidate’s second term in the European Parliament. The KDH won two of thirteen mandates in the European Parliament to which Slovakia is entitled. KDH Chairman Pavol Hrušovský has accepted Fronc's resignation from the post of deputy chairman for foreign relations.

“It is his personal decision," said Hrušovský as quoted by the SITA newswire.
