"What trust can you have in the liberalism of a person who, through a combination of lies and

intimidation, avoided such a natural thing as a secret ballot at our party congress? It wasn't explained: It was just

to prevent a division in ANO and to retain its unity. Even Stalin would be too embarrassed to do that."

Branislav Opaterný, co-founder of the New Citizen's Alliance ANO and state secretary for the Ministry of

Transport, in an interview with the daily Pravda,when asked about Pavol Rusko's leadership of the party. His

comment led Rusko to invite him to leave ANO.
