HZDS wins lacklustre regional ballot

Merely 26% of registered voters cast ballots in regional elections December 1, in what analysts called a sign of general voter ignorance of the purpose of the new regional parliaments. The opposition HZDS recorded the best results, winning five of eight regions, including all 45 seats in Trenčín region.
