A POLL published recently by the European Commission shows that only 28 percent of young Slovaks are interested in and follow politics.

Among youth in the EU, Germans pay the most attention to politics, but are the most skeptical about their country's future. Slovaks, despite their lack of interest, are among the most optimistic, the SME daily wrote.

Slovaks are the only group in the EU, however, to show an almost total lack of faith in individual politicians and political parties.

According to the findings of the EU statistics bureau, Eurostat, young Slovaks resemble young Brits in preferring to work for a non-profit organization than a political party.
