Iveta Radičová could re-enter politics

TWO YEARS after her forced departure from the post of prime minister, Iveta Radičová is pondering a return to politics. She is still contemplating on how to do it, she admitted in an interview with the Sme daily on election night on March 15.

“I do not belong to people who will sit in a corner, which does not automatically mean a return to top politics,” Radičová told Sme, after readers of the daily repeatedly asked her whether they might still see her in politics. But she also added “never say never” when responding.

Until now, Radičová has denied any interest in getting back into politics, and in 2012 she told Sme she was definitely not returning.

When speaking about a possible return to politics, she also said that she is offering solutions in the social sphere, in which she specialises as an academic.

“There are people in top politics who are lost in this area,” she told Sme.
