Novotný reconfirms his candidacy for SDKÚ chair

MP Viliam Novotný confirmed at a press conference on April 30 that he will be a candidate to chair the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) at its upcoming national party congress, the TASR newswire reported. "After 12 years of my political career in SDKÚ I feel prepared," Novotný stated, as quoted by TASR, adding that he appreciates the support he has received from the SDKÚ Košice regional organisation. The MP said he would like SDKU to be an open, modern and centre-right party. "A party that will reach out to people in the regions and represent those who are working and paying taxes," said Novotný. Novotny said that he views himself as a dark horse candidate against the two others vying to chair the party, Lucia Žitňanská and Pavol Frešo. Even though the SDKÚ was backed primarily by voters from large towns in the March 10 general election, Novotný said that the party would like to appeal to everyone who works and pays taxes.

"We've distanced ourselves from people. We've stopped communicating with them. We need a new, modern and comprehensible programme," Novotný stated, as quoted by TASR.
