Robert Fico, chairman of the Smer party which is running second in the polls, has said he “will not be a postman” for messages sent by Western diplomats to Slovakia, adding that his party is open to post-election cooperation with any other. Fico also said the Dzurinda government’s decision to shut down the aging Jaslovské Bohunice nuclear reactor between 2006 and 2008, at the urging of the European Union, was a “grave error”, and promised to “negotiate more aggressively” on pre-accession issues that remained open for discussion.
