President plans speech on STV ahead of elections

SLOVAK President Ivan Gašparovič has asked the public TV channel Slovenská Televízia (STV) to provide him airtime for a televised address ahead of the general elections this Saturday, Branislav Záhradník, a member of STV management confirmed for the SME daily.

According to the president's spokesman, Marek Trubač, the short speech will be aimed at mobilising voters.

However, apart from being president, Gašparovič is also honorary chairman of the non-parliamentary Movement for a Democracy (HZD), which is competing in the elections. STV has, therefore, put off the decision on whether to grant his request until a legal analysis of election law is concluded.
