In the latest of a series of departures the head of the Bratislava branch of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), Michal Luciak, is leaving, the Sme daily wrote.

Other big names like Lucia Žitňanská, Miroslav Beblavý, co-founders Mikuláš Dzurinda and Ivan Mikloš; Magdalena Vášáryová, and recently Martin Fedor and Viliam Novotný have left the party.

In addition to Luciak , Eugen Jurzyca, Jozef Mikuš and Stanislav Horník from Banská Bystrica are leaving, the TASR newswire wrote. Two more members of SDKÚ, Bratislava councillors Jozef Uhler and Radovan Jenčík, left the party around noon December 12.

“We have made everything possible to consolidate the party and create a new offer on agenda,” they write in a statement. “Our effort, however, missed its aim and thus we are leaving its ranks as of today.”

SDKU has lost its caucus in parliament after recent leavings and has only two MEPs - Ivan Štefanec and Eduard Kukan and two MPs, Pavol Frešo and Ľudovít Kaník who is in charge of finances.
