INDEPENDENT MP Martin Fedor joins the non-parliamentary Sieť party, he told the media on December 3.
Fedor left the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) on November 19, leaving also its parliamentary caucus which in fact meant its end (as the number of MPs dropped below eight, which is the limit set by the parliamentary rules). At the time he said he will tell more about his political future in two weeks. The deadline expired on December 3, the SITA newswire wrote.
“I’m not founding a new party,” Fedor said, as quoted by SITA. “I decided that I will join my political actions with the party of Radoslav Procházka.”
He added that to achieve the change in 2016 (when the parliamentary elections will take place) it is necessary to create an alternative that will be strong enough. He stressed that Sieť is the party with which he wants to join forces. He added that Procházka is interested in topics like the safety of the state and its citizens.
“Sieť is the only party which does not need only to survive, but I believe that it wants to change the public space,” Fedor added, as quoted by SITA.
According to Procházka, leader of Sieť, Fedor is a young and dynamic person with a clear idea of how the system of state protection should work. He added that the MP will play a significant role in the party. He did not say whether Fedor will become member of the party’s leadership, as reported by SITA.
Also another SDKÚ renegade Miroslav Beblavý is currently member of Sieť. The party was officially registered on May 26, 2014. The establishing congress of the party took place on September 1. It currently has about 800 members with the average age between 35 and 37 years, SITA wrote.
