Ordinary People expected to create its own party
Chairman of the parliamentary caucus of ruling coalition party SaS, Jozef Kollar, has said that he expects the Obycani Ludia (Ordinary People) faction of the party to split and form a new party eventually.
The OL party, led by the controversial Igor Matovic, got four MPs into parliament on the shoulders of the SaS in the June parliamentary elections.
According to an agreement that the two parties signed in August, the OL will not leave the SaS caucus, but that does not mean it cannot set up an independent party after the agreement expires at the end of the year.
Kollar claims that Matovic gave a verbal promise to SaS chairman Richard Sulik that even if its MPs were to go their own way after the agreement lapses, they would not leave the SaS caucus.
