SDKÚ supports Hrušovský for president

THE CHRISTIAN Democratic Movement-KDH’s presidential candidate Pavol Hrušovský has won the support of the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union-SDKÚ, Chairman Pavol Frešo announced December 18. “When deciding to support a candidate in the first round of the presidential election, SDKÚ presidium gave priority to our long-term policy to unite standard centre-right forces as a counterweight to the dominance of the one socialist party,” Frešo said as quoted by the TASR newswire. “Accordingly, SDKÚ didn't endorse its own presidential candidate and is recommending to voters to support Pavol Hrušovský.”
