“It is absolutely normal; we live in a democratic state,” Slota said.

“All party bodies have to be re-elected every four years. If I have certain confidence of districts, our membership base, I will accept the candidacy,” Slota told SITA on September 8.

At the same time he stressed that nobody is resigning from any post in the party. Apart from the chair, the delegates will also elect first deputy and other chairpersons as well as the whole leadership. Slota stated that he feels he has support from the district structures.
