SPOLU - ob?ianska demokracia (English: TOGETHER - Civic Democracy) is a conservative-liberal[4] and environmentalist political party in Slovakia. It was established in 2018.


SPOLU was announced on 17 November 2017, by former under-secretary of Sie? Miroslav Beblavý, who left the party in protest of its decision to join the Smer-led government, and former under-secretary of liberal SaS Jozef Mihál.[5]

The party presents itself as a centre-right, pro-European party focusing on a modern economy, accessible healthcare and a functional educational system.[6][7]

The Founding Council of SPOLU consists of independent MPs of the National Council of the Slovak Republic and former members of Sie?, SaS and O?aNO: Oto ?arnay, Jozef Mihál, Simona Petrík, Viera Duba?ová, Miroslav Beblavý, Katarína Machá?ková and lawyer Pavel Nechala of Transparency International.[8]

The party's founding congress was held on 14 April 2018 in Poprad. Miroslav Beblavý was elected as its leader. Katarína Machá?ková and Jozef Mihál were elected as Deputy leaders, with the third Deputy leader being Erik Balá?, founder of environmentalist campaign We are the forest, and recipient of the White Crow 2017 award for the fight against corruption.[9]
