SLOVAK Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) has a new leader for its parliamentary caucus. MP Lucia Žitňanská replaced Ľudovít Kaník in the post on November 27, the TASR newswire reported.

The decision was made at a session of the SDKÚ caucus earlier in the day. All MPs present at the session, apart from Kaník and the party’s leader Pavol Frešo, voted in favour of Žitňanská, the Sme daily reported. Frešo, however, claimed for the daily that the MPs voted unanimously.

“The caucus has decided. We’ve elected Lucia Žitňanská,” Kaník told journalists. He declined to provide any further details about the decision, however, stating that it concerned internal party issues.

“Something old has met something new, and the old has won for the moment,” he commented, as quoted by Sme.
