ELECTION 2012: Sulík: It is time for change of generations on the right

The rightist parties should now utilise an ideal opportunity to deal with a changeover of political generations and to stabilise themselves so that they can offer a stronger alternative to Smer in four years, said Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) chairman Richard Sulík on private television Markíza's political talk show on March 11.

"We'll be building up the party," said Sulík when asked about the changes that SaS intends to make in order to improve its election result in four years.

The liberal party gained the support of 5.88 percent of the voters in the election while Sulík said that he is happy with this outcome, as well as with the number of preferential votes that he received. According to him, these have confirmed his position as party leader, which he could have lost.
