It's time to fight for the cleansing of Christian politics and to return it to where it belongs, the leader of parliamentary opposition party OLaNO, Igor Matovič, stated on Monday, while announcing that he's set up a new platform called "Bravely" in order to attract the votes of Christians who don't trust existing Christian parties. He stated that the new political wing will be given half of OLaNO's slate and will have half of the party's budget at its disposal. "Out of every 100 Christians, only six vote for a Christian party," he explained, adding that current OLaNO members will not join "Bravely," as the new platform is meant for new people. The news was not welcomed by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) - currently out of Parliament - whose leader Alojz Hlina thinks that conservative voters should unite around his party which has undergone reforms and has a long tradition of defending Christian values in Slovak politics.
