Bratislava, September 12 (TASR) - Former health and interior minister Tomas Drucker will deliver signatures from citizens to the Interior Ministry on Thursday and apply for registration of his political party called "Good Choice", the emerging party's spokesperson Martina Soltesova told TASR on the same day.
Drucker stresses the need for fair health care for all. He also talks about a better life for families and pensioners. He wants to address regions as well, saying these should be strong and well-functioning.
Drucker will co-operate with Tomas Kuca, who has already worked with him at the Slovak Post Office, the Health Ministry, and was Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini's (Smer-SD) communication office chief up to now. Lawyer and Police Academy rector Lucia Kurilovska, as well as MPs Martin Fedor and Katarina Csefalvayova (both Most-Hid) are also being mentioned in connection with Drucker's party.
Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini (Smer-SD) was also mentioned but the premier says he hasn't talked with Drucker about co-operation. However, he admitted that the issue of his further functioning is being discussed within Smer-SD. In early September Pellegrini stated he feels like a pure social democrat, that social-democratic policy is close to him and that he doesn't intend to change any part of his political beliefs, either.
At least 10,000 signatures are required to register a party. The Interior Ministry is obliged to decide on the party's registration within 30 days of their submission. More than 150 political parties and movements are registered in Slovakia.
