Speaker’s LIDE party pulls out of election race

By: P.T., STA

The Liberal Democrats (LIDE), a party formed in January by Speaker Igor Zorčič, decided against contesting the 24 April general election after failing to agree a joint ticket with the Pensioners’ Party (DeSUS).

Zorčič said he would not stand for a seat in parliament, but would not answer directly when asked whether he would run in the presidential election in the autumn. The DeSUS executive council meanwhile decided that the party will contest the general election independently.
