The Slovak National Party (SNS) is taking on board the fact that it is staying outside of Parliament following the 2012 election but has its eyes set on making a comeback during the 2014 super-election year, party vice-chairs Andrej Danko and Rafael Rafaj told a press conference, TASR newswire reported on March 11.

"We definitely intend to put up a fight in the European Parliament (EP) elections,” said Rafaj. “The European Union's centralisation, the unfair system of agricultural subsidies and the bail-out, which is likely to go bankrupt, are issues that we've been pointing to.”

He added that the party will also strive to make an impact in the local elections due in 2014.

Meanwhile, in response to SNS chairman Ján Slota's no-show at the press conference, party spokesperson Jana Benková said that this was due to Slota's health concerns and that he will be available for comments early next week, TASR reported.
