Sme: Sulík will not run again if he loses election

The chairman of the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) Richard Sulík will run for re-election on Saturday, March 16, against his challenger and party colleague Jozef Kollár. Sulík said to the Sme daily that if he loses, he will complete the election period as a rank-and-file MP and will not run for the SaS in next year's Euro-elections, nor in the 2015 parliamentary elections.

Sulík said to the Sme daily that if he loses, he will complete the election period as a rank-and-file MP and will not run for the SaS in next year's Euro-elections, nor in the 2015 parliamentary elections.

He believes that he will win and that if he defeats Kollár, he wants to meet his conditions: he will not sidetrack his supporters and will support changes in the principles of managing the party towards the regions. Supporters of both candidates say that their chances are balanced and that they are not going to quit the party regardless of who wins. The rightist parties would welcome Kollár at the helm of SaS, Sme wrote. They argue that cooperating with Sulík is difficult. The convention that will pick the chairman for the neo-liberal party will take place in Prešov on March 16 without the presence of the media.
