Ivan Miklos Also Takes Back Seat in SDKU Party
Amidst rumours that he might be contemplating taking up a lucrative offer abroad, outgoing finance minister and deputy chairman of the SDKU party, Ivan Miklos, won’t be running for the leader or deputy party post at the next party congress.
Spokesman for the Ministry of Finance Martin Jaros told SME daily the news today. The SDKU party suffered a massive disappointment in the premature elections at the weekend, getting just under 6.1% of the vote compared to almost 15.5% in the 2010 general election. As a result, party head Mikulas Dzurinda declined to re-run for the post as well, paving the way for incumbent justice minister Lucia Zitnanska to take the party helm.
