Lipšic's New Majority has enough signatures to register as a party

The former Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) cabinet minister and current independent MP Daniel Lipšic's political movement, New Majority, announced in late summer, has already collected the 10,000 signatures required for registration as a party at the Interior Ministry, Gábor Grendel from the party's press department told the TASR newswire on Tuesday, October 2. The collection of signatures will continue for the next two weeks, however.

The collection of signatures will continue for the next two weeks, however.

New Majority was founded by MPs Lipšic and Jana Žitňanská (also from KDH but now independent). They announced the decision to register the movement on September 2, with Lipšic indicating that he wanted New Majority to be a broader movement rather than a narrowly-profiled political party. "It'll be a centre-right movement, but won't be narrowly ideological. We want to tackle problems that really trouble people. Legalisation of marijuana certainly isn't one of them. Unemployment surely is," he said.
