Five parties to represent Slovakia in EP

THE RULING Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), opposition parties Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) and Smer, and coalition parties the Christian Democrats (KDH) and the Hungarian Coalition (SMK) will represent Slovakia in the European Parliament, unofficial results of the June 13 elections showed.

The private news agency SITA reported that the turnout of 714,508 people was a mere 16.96 percent of Slovakia’s eligible voters.

The SDKÚ received 17.1 percent of the vote, the HZDS got 17 percent, Smer ended third with 16.9 percent, and the KDH followed with 16.2 percent; each party thus won three EP seats. With 13.2 percent, the SMK will have two MEPs.
