A TOTAL of 26 political parties filed candidate lists with Slovakia’s Ministry of Interior before midnight on December 11. The Central Election Commission (ÚVK) will now check all the party’s lists and other documents and make a final decision before December 31 on which political parties meet the conditions for fielding candidates in the March 10 parliamentary elections, the TASR newswire reported.
The head of the ÚVK, Lívia Škultétyová, said that there were several administrative mistakes found in the submitted candidate lists, including missing academic degrees or details about candidates’ jobs.
The candidate lists contain a total of 2,971 names, Škultétyová said, adding that only 15 political parties presented complete slates with 150 names.
The ÚVK also received applications from six individuals but did not accept them as Slovak law does not permit individuals without a party affiliation to stand for election.
