Complaint against presidential ads

PRESIDENTIAL candidate Jozef Šesták turned to the Constitutional Court with a complaint that some of his rivals had started their presidential campaigns prior to the legal date of one month before elections.

The presidential elections will be held on April 3.

According to Šesták, presidential candidates Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan, Christian Democrat František Mikloško, and the head of the Bratislava greater territorial unit Ľubo Roman should be forced to eliminate their election posters and ads, the daily SME wrote.

Other candidates, for example former Movement for a Democratic Slovakia member Ivan Gašparovič, have also published election ads.
