Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) deputy chairpersons Ivan Mikloš and Lucia Žitňanská are not planning to run for the post of party election leader prior to Slovakia's March 10 general election, the two ministers announced at a news conference on Tuesday, October 25.

SDKÚ leader Mikuláš Dzurinda said, as quoted by the SITA newswire, that the party presidium had decided to hold primaries to fill the top post on the party's ballot. The deadline for applications is November 2. If enough candidates register, the primaries will take place on November 12. There will not be primaries to elect candidate MPs. The party leader is automatically entered in the primaries for the election leader job and, if he/she faces no rival, automatically becomes the election leader. To run in the primaries for election leader, nomination is required – by the party presidium, the leadership of a regional organisation, or by at least 300 members of the party.
