The Slovak presidential election set for March 21, 2009 will cost Slovak taxpayers more than €9.5 million (Sk286.2 million), according to the Interior Ministry's election organisation (ÚVK).
Most of the expenses will be incurred by the Interior Ministry and the Slovak Statistics Office and will be spent providing ballot, papers, voting lists and information materials, as well the technology connected with statistical evaluation and the salaries of election committee observers and others contributing to the election’s organisation. The financial resources are already accounted for in Slovakia's 2009 budget. TASR
