“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).
