The election leader of the largest opposition party, Iveta Radičová of the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKU), hopes that her party will achieve a better result in Saturday’s election than the opinion polls have recently suggested, she said, as reported by the SITA newswire, after she cast her vote in the precinct of Nova Dedinka outside Bratislava where she resides.
“The percentage is not important for the election result, but mainly the fact whether you end up in the opposition or you get the chance to form the government,” SITA quoted her as saying.
She added that she believes there is a chance for the centre-right parties to change the direction Slovakia is heading at the moment.
