Smer, the largest opposition party, placed its chairman Robert Fico at the top of its slate, followed by Pavol Paška and Robert Kaliňák. The Smer leadership endorsed the final order of the slate – as proposed by Fico – on the evening of December 7. Places four to six will be taken by Marek Maďarič, Dušan Čaplovič and Peter Kažimír, followed by Ján Počiatek, Richard Raši, Ján Richter and Peter Žiga.

The Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party slate will be headed by party chairman Richard Sulík, followed by ministers Daniel Krajcer, Juraj Miškov and Jozef Mihál; places six to ten have the names of Jana Kiššová, Jozef Kollár, Natália Blahová, Martin Poliačik and Kamil Krnáč.

Names in the second ten places of the SaS slate include Lucia Nicholsonová, Martin Chren and former OKS member Peter Osuský. The slate also includes the name of rock musician Martin Greksa and judge Peter Paluda, as well as constitutional lawyer Milan Galanda.

Political parties have a deadline of December 11 to transmit their lists of candidates and to deposit €16,596, a condition for accepting the slate, TASR wrote.
