Re: Coalition out of the race, By Lukáš Fila, Apr 5 - 12, 2004, Vol 10, No 13
In Slovakia there are many pensioners and they vote regularly because they were taught and forced to do so during the communist era and so they became used to voting - it's an obligation for them as they see it. For all of these people Mečiar is a memory of old times and also the symbol of the Czechoslovak separation, and that counts for them. They think that Mečiar could bring the social advantages of the former era back to them, but that's a mistake.
In contrast, many of the young people are irresponsible and they would rather take a trip or have fun than come to the elections because they don't care. And that's the reason why people like me must suffer now.
