Political parties and party coalitions must submit their slates by December 11 if they want to participate in the parliamentary election set for March 10, Slovakia’s Central Election Commission (ÚVK) announced on November 14, as reported by the TASR newswire.
The ÚVK will hold its first meeting on December 16 to select its chairman and vice-chair, the TASR newswire wrote. For a party slate to be registered with the ÚVK it must pay a deposit of €16,596.
A party that gets at least 2 percent of the vote will get its deposit returned within 30 days after the results of the election are announced. Deposits that are not returned go to the state's general revenues.
