The leadership of the Košice regional organisation of the strongest opposition party, the Slovak Democratic Christian Union (SDKÚ), voted on February 8, to nominate party vice-chairperson Iveta Radičová for the post of election leader, the SITA newswire reported.

Radičová won 18 votes of 23 regional leaders who attended. However, the stance of the regional leadership does not oblige other members, who are free to vote according to their own choice. The SDKÚ Presidium will approve the final slate for the primary election of the party election leader next week. The SDKÚ will choose its election leader on February 27. The party is holding the primaries after party leader Mikuláš Dzurinda decided he would not run in the June elections earlier this month.

Leaders of the SDKÚ regional organisation in Bratislava nominated party vice-chairman Ivan Mikloš for election leader, SITA wrote. Most senior members expect a tough and unfair campaign, and, according to them, Mikloš is better suited for such a fight, said Lucia Žitňanská, chairperson of the SDKÚ regional organisation in Bratislava. Miklos was supported by seventeen out of nineteen members who attended. SITA
