Slovakia has a new political party, Nation and Justice (NaS), which was registered at the Interior Ministry on October 18. The party was established by Anna Belousovová and Rudolf Pučík, two breakaway MPs from the Slovak National Party (SNS), the TASR newswire reported.

Belousovová said she would run for the post of NaS chair at the party's inaugural congress in November. "Today [Tuesday, October 18] marks the day when the Nation and Justice party was registered at the Interior Ministry. The same day marks the beginning of the existence of a party that has long been missing here," said Belousovová.

She added that NaS will run in the general election on March 10, but asserted that the election had been set early in an effort to sink six newly emerging parties that could otherwise be rivals to the two largest parties. In response to the latest polls, which give Belousovova's new party support of around 2 percent, she said that NaS will strive to win over the voters of other parties, as well as people who haven't yet decided who to vote for. There is interest in Slovakia in a moderate, patriotic party such as NaS, she added.
