SOME 50.1 percent of Slovaks plan to take part in the upcoming regional elections, in which the councillors and heads of eight Slovak higher territorial units (VÚC) will be chosen for the next four years.

Some 38.9 percent of those who declared they lacked interest or were undecided about the VÚC elections said that their vote would not change anything and expressed their disappointment with the current political scene.
