BRATISLAVA, June 15, (SITA) -- Four members of the Civic Conservative Party (OKS), who made it to parliament on the list of candidates of the MOST-HID party, want to be a firm part of a rightist government. On Tuesday afternoon, party chairman Peter Zajac and deputy chairmen Ondrej Dostal, Frantisek Sebej and Peter Osusky publicly signed a commitment to support the government of a rightist coalition. “This is a clear commitment to support the program statement of the government and not support in any way any proposal of the current opposition to recall the government or members of any government. We de facto pledge to be a firm part of this government coalition during this whole election term,” Peter Zajac said at Tuesday’s press conference. The four committed to support “without any preliminary conditions” a government of a rightist coalition while they will not support a government with participation of the former ruling coalition parties SMER-SD and SNS. OKS wants to deliver its commitment to all parties of the future ruling rightist coalition. According to Mr. Zajac, the new rightist government should not repeat mistakes of the two former cabinets of Mikulas Dzurinda and it should act rationally. I cannot imagine us condoning with any forms of corruption of this government, Mr. Zajac stated. “This is impossible,” he emphasized.
Mr. Zajac did not want to say whether they talked with other parties about potential posts in the cabinet that OKS could receive. “We will not talk about any proposals, ideas or our concepts at this moment as we are convinced that first, all mutual negotiations have to be carried out. And only after these negotiations are concluded, it is necessary to talk publicly,” Mr. Zajac stated. Nobody from the OKS party said how much the party will receive from the state for the fact it made it to parliament and how the party agreed with the MOST-HID party which offered OKS space on its list of candidates. “These are topics that should be discussed by political parties and we should not talk about such things through media so we cannot express our position on this,” Mr. Dostal stated.
Mr. Zajac added that the received commitment does not resolve the question of whether they will form in parliament any common faction with the MOST-HID party. According to him, this commitment is about not giving Robert Fico any room to attack a rightist government through OKS. “I directly tell him he can forget about this,” Mr. Zajac said in reference to the SMER-SD chief. OKS also commented on Mr. Fico’s recent remark comparing OKS with the Taliban or an extreme right party. “Talebin are terrorists and extreme right are Fascists. We want to clearly and unambiguously tell Robert Fico to forget about this. He should finally realize that he is talking to democrats even if he did not notice us in 1989 [during the Velvet Revolution that did away with the Communist regime in former Czechoslovakia] or later,” Mr. Zajac said.
OKS members, voted into parliament on the MOST-HID list, consider as their moral obligation, from which they do not want to step aside, to help set right the wrong-doing on Hedviga Malinova [an ethnic Hungarian student who became the victim of an allegedly ethically motivated attack in 2006 but police investigation concluded she fabricated her account] and justly resolve the issue of the waste dump in the town of Pezinok. “All other things only mean introducing justice in Slovakia,” Mr. Zajac said. According to him, OKS members do not change their opinion only because their position has changed. We will try to repair deformations from the period of Robert Fico’s government. This should be one of the first tasks of the new governing coalition,” Mr. Dostal
