A public campaign to collect 10,000 signatures to register a new political party, 'Nation and Justice' (NAS), was started in eastern Slovakia on July 18, independent MP Anna Belousovová announced, the TASR newswire reported.
"We've collected several thousand signatures during the past few weeks since we announced that we were forming NAS," said Belousovová, who had been expelled from the Slovak National Party (SNS) for criticising the party via the media.
Belousovová said NAS wants to learn directly from people what their concerns are and what problems they face in their towns and villages.
