OKS representative to attend future Coalition Council sessions

Future sessions of the Coalition Council, consisting of the leaders of the four governing coalition parties, will include an MP from the Civic Conservative Party (OKS) whose four members of parliament were elected on the Most-Hid election slate and sit in that party’s caucus, the TASR newswire reported.

Future sessions of the Coalition Council, consisting of the leaders of the four governing coalition parties, will include an MP from the Civic Conservative Party (OKS) whose four members of parliament were elected on the Most-Hid election slate and sit in that party’s caucus, the TASR newswire reported.

Peter Zajac, the chairman of OKS, announced the new arrangement following a meeting of OKS's country-wide council held on June 25. The arrangement was made possible by an agreement between Most-Hid and OKS that was approved by OKS at its meeting.

"This creates a new relationship between the parties," Zajac told TASR, expressing his regret that the arrangement had not been made at the beginning of the government's term last summer.

In a previous proposal, Most-Híd wanted OKS to attend meetings only when its views regarding a particular issue were different from those of Most-Híd.

The agreement will remain in effect until the end of the electoral term or until any changes to the four-party Coalition Agreement are made.
