NOVA is a conservative political party in Slovakia.

History[edit]

The party was established on 2 September 2012 by Daniel Lipšic and Jana Žitňanská, representatives of Slovak national council, who had previously left the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH).[1] Daniel Lipšic, who had also been the vice-president of his former party, was elected its president. They represent a conservative faction of party. In May 2013, five representatives of Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) Jozef Kollár [sk], Juraj Droba, Daniel Krajcer, Juraj Miškov and Martin Chren left the party and join to New Majority. They represent a liberal faction of the party.[2]

In the 2014 European elections, New Majority came in fifth place nationally, receiving 6.83% of the vote and electing 1 MEP.[3]

In the 2016 parliamentary elections NOVA ran its candidates on a common list with Ordinary People, getting two of them elected.
