Party of Slovak Revival

Party of Slovak Revival (Slovak: Strana slovenskej obrody, SSO) was a political party founded in 1948 by pro-Communist members of the Slovak Democratic Party. It was accepted into the Czechoslovak National Front and got 17 seats in the Slovak parliament (Communists had 78 and the Freedom Party 4 seats). Jozef Mjartan, chairman of the SSO was the interim chairman of the Slovak parliament from 15 to 23 June 1958 and the party (as a satellite of the Communist party) had representatives in other government bodies during the Communist era. The Party of Slovak Revival broke with the Communist Party in 1989 and re-named to Democratic Party, but did not gain any importance in Slovak politics.
