Five MPs of the ruling Sieť party who are critical of the current chair Radoslav Procházka may not attend the congress planned to be held in Trnava on August 13 at which they should choose a new leader.

“There are doubts whether the preparation of the Saturday congress meets democratic criteria,” the MPs wrote in a statement, as quoted by the TASR newswire, adding that not even current deputy chairs of the party can look at the list of delegates or its programme.

The critics, namely Andrej Hrnčiar, Martin Fedor, Katarína Cséfalvayová, Igor Janckulík and Eduard Adamčík, say that if the basic attributes like political correctness, openness and democratic values are not met, they will not attend the party’s congress.

“Our aim is that Sieť’s congress is based on democratic rules, in an open and correct way,” the MPs said, as quoted by TASR, adding it is necessary for the party’s future.

Procházka responded that the five MPs are afraid of the potential outcome of the vote, in which Adamčík will run.

“Regarding their candidate this fear is justified,” Procházka wrote in a statement, as quoted by TASR.

As for their concern about the democratic attributes of the congress, he said that the programme and the list of delegates will be approved by the party’s leadership on August 10. They were allegedly invited to the meeting of the leadership, and Adamčík even confirmed he would attend, as reported by TASR.
