Slovak President congratulates Barack Obama

Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič has congratulated Barack Obama on his victory in Tuesday’s US presidential election.

Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič has congratulated Barack Obama on his victory in Tuesday’s US presidential election.

He said he believes the already good relations between Slovakia and the United States will improve, the SITA newswire wrote.

Meanwhile, Ján Slota, the leader of the Slovak National party, a junior partner in Slovakia’s governing coalition, said that Barack Obama had won the US presidential elections partly due to the arrogant and silly policies of his predecessor, George W. Bush. SNS deputy chairperson Anna Belousová said that she expects the US under Obama to pursue more humane policies and to abandon what she called its role as world judge and gendarme.

The chairman of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) party, Mikuláš Dzurinda, said that a widely-anticipated change had come in the USA. He said that in recent years America had carried a heavy burden and immense responsibility on its shoulders, not only for development in the USA, but also in a broader sense. The country was tired, as the load was heavy and they longed to get rid of the load or lighten it somewhat, Dzurinda said. SITA
