Another player has officially joined the Slovak political scene. The Interior Ministry registered Progresívne Slovensko (Progressive Slovakia) as a new political movement, the party announced on November 28.
Progressive Slovakia handed over 13,500 signatures to the ministry and applied for registration, the TASR newswire wrote. The party fulfilled the required conditions and it registered Progressive Slovakia as a new political movement, Martin Dubéci of the party informed the newswire.
Progressive Slovakia is supposed to offer an alternative for people across the political scene, which lacks a progressive, liberal, pro-European force. Its founders presented in September a comprehensive vision for Slovakia, while in the near future they are planning to present more new faces, TASR reported.
Members will vote for their chair and other leaders at the party’s founding congress in Žilina on January 20.
The representatives of Progressive Slovakia include businessman Ivan Štefunko, human rights activist Irena Biháriová, culture expert Zora Jaurová as well as IT expert and CEO Michal Truban.
