Sieť founders submit registration petition

IN THREE weeks’ time Radoslav Procházka, and the other founders of the Sieť party, collected more than enough signatures to have the party officially registered.

IN THREE weeks’ time Radoslav Procházka, and the other founders of the Sieť party, collected more than enough signatures to have the party officially registered.

Procházka submitted the petition for his party along with 20,000 signatures of citizens at the Interior Ministry on May 26. The law requires 10,000 signatures for a party to be registered.

Procházka, now an independent MP leaving the parliament after the current parliamentary session, views the fact that the party managed to collect the signatures in a very short time as a sign of people's confidence in his newly emerging political project, the TASR newswire reported.

In terms of funding, Procházka rejected accusations that the party is being sponsored by alleged Smer benefactor Jozef Brhel.

"This is the first time I've heard about that,” he said as quoted by TARS. “It's more absurd than anything else I've heard in this respect so far.”

Procházka went on to explain that his intention is to finance the party via a bank loan.

Meanwhile, according to the latest poll released by Focus, Procházka's Sieť would have garnered 13.3 percent of the votes had a general election taken place in May, putting it in second place after the ruling Smer.
