Former SNS vice-chair Belousovová removed from local candidate list

Slovak National Party (SNS) MP Anna Belousovová on November 24 said that her removal from the SNS slate of those running for the town council in Čadca (Žilina region) by SNS chairman Ján Slota is nothing but a political execution, the TASR newswire reported. Belousovová said Slota's action was motivated by personal revenge and an attempt to use a alliance of local businessmen in gaining economic power in this district town in the Kysuce area.

Slovak National Party (SNS) MP Anna Belousovová on November 24 said that her removal from the SNS slate of those running for the town council in Čadca (Žilina region) by SNS chairman Ján Slota is nothing but a political execution, the TASR newswire reported.

Belousovová said Slota's action was motivated by personal revenge and an attempt to use a alliance of local businessmen in gaining economic power in this district town in the Kysuce area.

"I stood up against a group of businessmen who support Pavol Holeštiak for Mayor. He's a candidate backed by SNS and Smer. That means the mask of patriotism and leftism, with some disgusting business in the background. This is what I can't countenance. SNS and Smer shouldn't be supporting such tunnellers and their candidate. The response to my open criticism was my removal from the slate. I'm shocked to see that Smer and SNS are not doing leftist and national politics here..," Belousovová told TASR.

SNS dismissed any questions regarding Belousovová's removal, according to SNS spokesperson Jana Benková. "SNS chairman Ján Slota did it - in written form, legally, and within the deadline," informed Benková.
