According to the final results of Slovakia’s June 12 general election, the number of women in the country’s next 150-seat parliament will fall from the current 26 to 23, the TASR newswire wrote. Ten women among the new MPs will come from the Smer party, which gained the highest level of voter support (35 percent), and they will outnumber six women who are members of the runner-up Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ). Four women MPs will represent the new parliamentary party Freedom and Solidarity (SaS).
