The COOP Jednota retail chain on Thursday, June 10, rejected accusations levelled by the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) that it intends to check whether its employees vote for SMK's rival party, Most-Hid, in the general election this Saturday.

SMK spokesperson Eva Dunajská told the TASR newswire the day before that her party had learned that employees of a COOP-Jednota outlet in Dunajská Streda (Trnava region) had been told by their employer to bring all unused ballot papers to work next week in order to prove that they voted for Most-Híd on Saturday.

SMK called for the Central Election Commission (ÚVK) to adopt a provision that would prohibit voters from taking unused ballot papers away from polling stations. SMK believes that this measure would prevent vote-buying.

COOP Jednota spokesman Martin Katriak stressed that the company distances itself from any attempts to get involved in the election activities of any party.
