EP VOTE: Who will be the new MEPs?

THE RULING Smer party has received the highest number of votes in the election to the European Parliament but Robert Fico’s party has probably failed to defend its five mandates, according to unofficial estimates published by Sme.sk.

THE RULING Smer party has received the highest number of votes in the election to the European Parliament but Robert Fico’s party has probably failed to defend its five mandates, according to unofficial estimates published by Sme.sk.

Smer with its 24.09 percent, will probably take four seats of Slovakia’s 13 seats in the European Parliament. According to the daily Sme, EU commissioner Maroš Šefčovič, Monika Flašíková Beňová, Boris Zala and Vladimír Maňka will head to the EP.

The Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) harvested 13.21 percent of the votes, thus sending two deputies, Anna Záborská and Miroslav Mikolášik, to the European Parliament, according to unofficial estimates reported by Sme.

The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) got 7.75 percent of the vote and is likely to have two mandates in the EP as well. Ivan Štefanec and Eduard Kukan are likely to join the EP.

The rest of the parties will have one mandate each, the estimates suggest.

Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) received 7.46 percent and should send Branislav Škripek to the EP. NOVA collected 6.83 percent and its one mandate should go to Jana Žitňanská.

Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) picked 6.66 percent of the vote and Richard Sulík should take the mandate. The non-parliamentary Party of the Hungarian Community (SMK) got 6.53 percent and might send Pál Csáky to Brussels and Most-Híd collected 5.83 percent of the vote while its mandate will go to József Nagy, unofficial results published by Sme.sk suggest.
