Weiss complained that the Statistics Office did not provide him with the election results from individual electoral commissions. SDĽ has not been able to compare the results with the parallel counting carried out by SDĽ, he said.

“In the Election Act, the Statistics Office is cited as the only institution that is responsible for processing the results of elections. There's no single word in the act on any obligation of the Statistics Office towards any parallel results,” responded the chairwoman of the Statistics Office, Ľudmila Benkovičová.
