Slovak Election Commission said EP voting was smooth

Despite several complaints to the Central Election Commission (ÚVK), the elections to the European Parliament (EP) ran smoothly, UVK secretary Lívia Škultétyová said after the polling stations closed late on Saturday, June 6. “The Commission didn't receive any complaints that would attest to any infringements of the course of the elections or to the election law being violated at any of the polling stations, said Škultétyova for the TASR newswire. According to the secretary, the ÚVK will calculate the overall results and present them to the Parliamentary Chairman Pavol Paška on Monday, June 8. Slovaks decided on their representation at the EP for the second time in the country's history on Saturday, June 6, choosing their candidates from 16 political parties and voting in 5,906 election districts.
