The leader of the newcomer political party on the Slovak political scene, Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), Richard Sulík, is considering a coalition with the Most-Híd party led by Béla Bugár, news channel TA3 reported.
The head of SaS is considering this possibility because a coalition with the strongest opposition party, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, SDKÚ, seems unrealistic at the moment. SaS has conditioned such a coalition on Mikuláš Dzurinda of SDKÚ not being the leader of the joint slate. The SDKÚ, however, has said this condition is unfair.
Sulík did not rule out that if his plan of cooperation with SDKÚ fails, he will turn to the party of Béla Bugár. The SaS leader confirmed that he had already discussed the issue with the Most-Híd chairman. Bugár did comment on the matter. However, the TA3 reported information that the new coalition is already in the pipeline. Most-Híd is expected to present its stance soon. TA3
