SaS chairman speaks about its new MPs from the Ordinary People civic association

Four members of the civic movement Ordinary People elected to parliament by preferential votes from the bottom of the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) slate will not threaten the fulfilment of key aspects of a new government which four centre-right parties hope to create, SaS leader Richard Sulík told the SITA newswire.

Four members of the civic movement Ordinary People elected to parliament by preferential votes from the bottom of the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) slate will not threaten the fulfilment of key aspects of a new government which four centre-right parties hope to create, SaS leader Richard Sulík told the SITA newswire.

Several non-party members competed on the SaS party list, perhaps forty, Sulík specified. The quartet in question expended enormous efforts and had the possibility like any other candidate to get preferential votes and to advance on the list and these four did it with great skill, said Sulík, adding that all SaS candidates share the party's values.

“But I guarantee that all our MPs, including these four people will support the keynote address and agenda of the new government at full scope and down to the last letter. This is what we guarantee,” said the party chairman.

Igor Matovič, Erika Jurinová, Martin Fecko and Jozef Viskupič from the Ordinary People association ran on the last four spots of the 150-member candidate list of the SAS and voters’ preferential votes sent them to parliament from the SaS slate. Sulík said that the quartet of activists will remain in parliament where they will control the fulfilment of the government's agenda as he said he agreed with them on Sunday, June 13.

According to Sulík, SaS is a party of new faces as 94 percent of its members have never been members of a political party before.
