BRATISLAVA (SITA) -- The vision of presidential candidate Augustin Kurek, chair of Bratislava Trade Union of City Transportation Drivers, is to unify political parties in Slovakia." I will strive to make Slovakia really independent and bring it to a position it deserves," Kurek told SITA on Monday. Kurek says United Labor Party (ZSP) chair Miroslav Kočnár appealed to him to run for the post, and one day latter also the ZSP central board okayed his candidacy. Kocnar submitted the candidacy proposal at Parliament on Monday. Kurek is without any party affiliation. Official Party of the Democratic Left (SDL) candidate Juraj Hraško said that disseminating information on talks with respective candidate to the second round of elections Kosice Mayor Rudolf Schuster was a mistake. However, Hraško said he was told about the Sunday meeting, so he does not perceive this SDL step as unfair. "If I am not elected, we should get ready for the second round," he told SITA. At the same time he thinks that his candidacy, despite the reluctance of the parliamentary majority, makes sense. "I have things to offer and I leave it up the deputies to vote following their best consciousness," he added. On Saturday, SDL Chair Jozef Migaš told SITA that in the case of Juraj Hrasko's failure in the first round the SDL will probably initiate talks with Kosice Mayor Rudolf Schuster on his candidacy in the second round. Slovak Prime Minister Vladimir Mečiar, last Thursday, disseminated some information on a new political body that is supposed to emerge with Schuster behind it. In response Schuster told SITA he has not established any political party and no one has offered him a presidential candidacy yet. "It is not ruled out yet whether any political party is to emerge or not. At this point, nothing like that is happening," he stressed. Rumor among media has it that Rudolf Schuster, former Slovak speaker of parliament in the former Czechoslovakia and mighty Kosice head wants to establish a new political party. The opposition daily SME even alleges that the ruling movement's Arpád Matejka seeks funding to back Schuster's candidacy for Presidency. The ambitious Schuster is the winner of PRAVDA-organized readers' contests "Who Will be the President" and "Personality of the Year" in 1997, leaving behind current Prime Minister Vladimir Mečiar.
