Beblavý to join Procházka in founding new political party

Independent MP Miroslav Beblavý will co-found a new political party along with independent MPs Radoslav Procházka and Andrej Hrnčiar. Unlike them, however, he doesn’t plan to relinquish his parliamentary mandate. “I accept the offer from Radoslav Procházka,” Beblavý said at a press conference on April 2, as quoted by the TASR newswire. Beblavý added that it was Procházka’s idea of a lean state that he found appealing and which won him over. He doesn’t entertain any plans to leave parliament, though. “I'll continue to serve here until 2016,” Beblavý said, adding that he enjoys being a lawmaker because he can do a lot of tangible good for the people in that role. Beblavý concluded he has realised that changes can be adopted only when a person is part of some kind of community and that’s why he wants to join forces with Procházka. He also concurs with him that Slovakia needs a new generation of politicians to take over and feels confident that such a change might happen in co-operation with Procházka.

Procházka announced on March 27 that he was leaving parliament to set up his own party; and Hrnčiar, leaving the Most-Híd caucus, announced on the same day that he would leave parliament in May. Beblavý deemed Procházka, as quoted by the SITA newswire, as able to create a strong political alternative to the ruling Smer party.
