SNS pulls out of working group discussing a new election code for Slovakia

The Slovak National Party (SNS) will no longer attend sessions of a working group tasked with drawing up a new election code, SNS first vice-chairman Andrej Danko told the TASR newswire on July 10. "This is due to pointless and purely formal working meetings with no relevant outcome, work dynamics or professional approach whatsoever," Danko said in reference to the work of the group which is headed by Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic.

"This is due to pointless and purely formal working meetings with no relevant outcome, work dynamics or professional approach whatsoever," Danko said in reference to the work of the group which is headed by Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic.

He added that the party will now opt either to present its own draft of the code or provide feedback on the issues in an independent fashion.

Lipšic had said earlier this year that a new election code should be prepared in a way that will permit parliament to act on it by the end of 2011 or the beginning of 2012.
