Mikuláš Dzurinda confirmed as SDKÚ election leader

The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) party, the largest party in the current coalition, will be led in the March 2012 election by its chairman and two-time former prime minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, SDKÚ spokesman Michal Lukáč confirmed on Wednesday, November 2, the TASR newswire reported.

The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) party, the largest party in the current coalition, will be led in the March 2012 election by its chairman and two-time former prime minister Mikuláš Dzurinda, SDKÚ spokesman Michal Lukáč confirmed on Wednesday, November 2, the TASR newswire reported.

No party primary for the post of election leader – i.e. the number one spot on the party’s election list – will take place, as no challenger to Dzurinda emerged by the set deadline and the party leader therefore received the position by default. The SDKÚ announced plans for a primary after the current prime minister, Iveta Radičová (who is also a member of the SDKÚ), announced that she would not stand in the general election.
