HZDS chairman Mečiar rates his party’s vice-chairs

Vice-chairs of the junior governing coalition party HZDS – Jozef Habánik, Peter Sika and Barbora Straková – have entered the Slovak political scene with the aim of assuming power in Slovakia in the future, the head of HZDS, Vladimír Mečiar, told the TASR newswire on Sunday, July 5, reacting to claims that the new generation of party vice-chairs is too bland.

Vice-chairs of the junior governing coalition party HZDS – Jozef Habánik, Peter Sika and Barbora Straková – have entered the Slovak political scene with the aim of assuming power in Slovakia in the future, the head of HZDS, Vladimír Mečiar, told the TASR newswire on Sunday, July 5, reacting to claims that the new generation of party vice-chairs is too bland.

The HZDS chairman said that the vice-chairs “haven't brought many distinctions yet”, but stressed their expert potential, noting that each of them has graduated from at least two universities and has a grasp of at least two languages.

Although Mečiar didn't rule out the importance of age and related experience and the ability to see the big picture, he said that old age alone isn't always able to help a person. He reiterated that he knows his vice-chairs well, including their qualifications and skills. “They haven't missed anything yet and their ambitions are high,” Mečiar emphasised. TASR
