Reader feedback: Political cocktail

Re: Communists out, Volume 12, Number 24, June 19 - June 25, 2006

The problem is that the coalition you have in mind - Smer and one or two of the present governing coalition parties - might be very similar to the first Dzurinda government, from communists to fundamentalist Catholic conservatives. That's a cocktail that is bound to spill over very fast and only increase the voters' general distrust of politicians. And investors don't like political instability, but the Slovak mentality might just ignore that this time around. Next time then, voters might be "forced" to reconsider the choices they made this June.
