Bratislava, May 31 (TASR) – Three MPs representing the We Are Family party – Peter Marcek, Martina Simkovicova and Rastislav Holubek – might be ousted from the party’s caucus due to their lack of activity in Parliament so far, TASR learnt on Tuesday.
“When Boris Kollar returns, the caucus will meet up and we should adopt a stance on the current situation,” TASR was told by MP Peter Pcolinsky, adding that party chief Kollar is currently in the USA.
According to Pcolinsky, Kollar isn’t satisfied with the work of the three aforementioned lawmakers. He didn’t want to comment on reports that they might be ousted from the caucus, however.
Rumours concerning the possible departure of the three MPs emerged a few weeks ago, with Kollar at the time telling TASR that nobody was leaving the caucus. Simkovicova, a former TV news anchor, also denied the reports.
Dennik N daily on Monday reported that the three legislators are considering setting up a platform in Parliament. Kollar at the same time told the daily that the three aren’t doing anything in Parliament. They aren’t coming up with any ideas and are only sitting there and voting.
We Are Family garnered 6.6 percent of the votes in the March general election, securing 11 seats in Parliament. At least eight members are needed for a party to maintain a parliamentary caucus.
