Social Democrat deputy chairman Martin Starec resigns

22-07-2006

The deputy chairman of the Social Democrats for management, Martin Starec, has resigned from his post. The CTK news agency reports the reason behind Mr Starec's decision was the fact that the modified party rules weakened his powers. The text of the party rules was the subject of a heated debate during Friday's meeting of the party leadership. The Central Executive Committee of the Social Democrats approved the new party rules on Saturday.
