“To protect the national interests of Slovakia and its citizens, the best solution is to run separately so as not to lose a single vote,” Harabin wrote in a press release on November 14.

However, Vlasť is still ready to address and meet with Smer, the Slovak National Party (SNS), Sme Rodina and the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) but without its leader Alojz Hlina.

“We will address all parties we think might pursue the same national and Christian values,” states the press release.

One day before the meeting with Harabin, Kotleba announced his party's cooperation with four smaller ones, namely Národná Koalícia, Doma Dobre, Priama demokracia, and Kresťanská demokracia – Život a prosperita – Aliancia za Slovensko (KDŽP).
