Another two members of Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), former MP Jaroslav Suja and a former employee of the party’s parliamentary office, Michal Nižňan, have left the party in the wake of the recent re-election of the party’s leader. Both men said that they were disenchanted with SaS’ direction, the TASR newswire reported on April 2.

“The values of SaS have changed since the time when I co-established the party,” said Suja, as quoted by TASR. He added that SaS policies have been moving away from real life in Slovakia, and “unfortunately, even the [March 16] party congress did not reverse the wrong direction that the party has taken”.

Nižňan explained that he does not think the leader of the party, Richard Sulík, will carry out any of the changes needed. According to him, “the congress rejected the internal democratisation of the party, as well as a new policy-making concept”, TASR wrote.

Shortly after the election, two members of SAS’ national board, Xaver Gubáš and František Ksenzsigh, announced they would leave the party. Another member of the party, former candidate for the chief post at the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) Kamil Krnáč announced on March 27 that he would leave the party.
