Reality show star Nora Mojsejová presents her new political party

Košice entrepreneur and controversial reality TV show star Nora Mojsejová launched the election campaign of her new political party, Nora Mojsejová's Party of Free Speech (Strana slobodného slova) on Thursday, December 8.

"We registered the party on Tuesday and submitted a slate with 150 candidates for the early election today," said Mojsejová, who was initially expected to run under the party name ANO (a liberal party led by Pavol Rusko that formed part of the 2002 coalition government, but has been dormant in recent years; Rusko recently granted Mojsejová the right to take over the party's existing registration).

"I'm the leader, with Anna Klobušická and Marek Štefica being the party vice-chairs. We have three students in the top 20 places… The slate is quite colourful, all of them being fresh faces. There's no celebrity there except for me, because I'm the biggest celebrity in Slovakia. The party is not right-wing nor left-wing but rather a party for people, as I think it's ludicrous to lean left or right. We are too small a country to fulfil such programme goals," she claimed.

If elected, Mojsejova's party plans, among other things, to reduce VAT on groceries and pharmaceutical products to 10 percent (from the current 20), raise the minimum salary by law and improve the business environment in favour of domestic businesses by reducing payroll deductions.
