HZDS to ask independent agency to inspect party election results

AFTER scoring a surprisingly low 8.79 percent support in the recent parliamentary elections, the opposition Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), headed by ex-PM Vladimír Mečiar, has requested an independent agency examine the election results.

The HZDS was once Slovakia's strongest party, winning the highest number of votes in 1998 and 2002, but was eventually margianalized by those opposed to forming a coalition with Mečiar.

Some officials have already suggested that Mečiar step aside now to help his party become more acceptable to political partners, such as the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), but the ex PM has called that idea "absurd" and "out of the question", SITA wrote.
