Robert Krajnak, a 35-year-old beer distributor, on November 11 placed an advertisement in the opposition daily Sme calling on Slovaks to sign a petition to remove Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar. The full-page advertisement included the headline "I was born under a totalitarian regime; I do not want to die under one." Krajnak needs to gather 350,000 signatures to call a referendum on Mečiar's dismissal. Mečiar's party - the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia - won 35 percent of the vote in last year's elections and remains the most popular party in Slovakia. The next parliamentary elections are scheduled for fall 1998.
