THE OPPOSITION Slovak National Party (SNS) will hold a party congress in Ružomberok on September 25 and Anna Belousovová, currently the party’s deputy chair, has announced she will run for the top post.
“This is my final and firm decision,” she told the SITA newswire.
Belousovová will campaign to unseat Ján Slota, the incumbent leader, who has already announced his candidacy.
Belousovová is convinced that the party’s regional structures will support her.
“We all think we have the support of regional structures, therefore we stand for election,” SITA quoted her as saying. “The congress will decide.”
Belousovová believes contesting the top position against Slota will not lead to a split in the party in the same way that a leadership struggle between the two did in the 1990s.
