ELECTION 2012: Žitňanská: Voters voiced need for change within SDKÚ

The centre-right parties did not manage to convince voters that they can govern without spats and that they are able to form a centre-right alternative and this needs to stop, Justice Minister and SDKÚ deputy chair Lucia Žitňanská said following the election results announcement on March 11 when her party gained the support of just 6.09 percent (compared with 15.1 percent in 2002, 18.4 percent in 2006 and 15.4 percent in 2010).

According to Žitňanská, the election outcome is a clear sign that change is needed not only within the country, but also within SDKÚ. Yet, Žitňanská has confirmed her intentions to run for the party's leadership, TASR reported.

"If I succeed I will do everything to help the party regain the position in Slovak politics that, in my opinion, it deserves," Žitňanská said.
