EIGHTEEN parties submitted their lists of a total of 202 candidates for the Slovak European Parliament (EP) elections scheduled for June 13. One fourth of the candidates are women, wrote the Slovak daily Pravda.
The candidates will compete for Slovakia’s 14 MEP positions.
The ruling coalition has agreed that the required legal norms needed to make sure the EP election is in line with the law will be submitted to parliament during the May session.
Slovakia must approve a constitutional amendment or a similar law to ensure that local authorities can resolve possible complaints regarding the election. Otherwise, possible complaints will be dealt with by the European Court of Human Rights, which could result in financial punishments for Slovakia and would also prolong election decisions.
