Hungarian public broadcaster M1 television has aired a political advertisement aimed at Hungarian-speaking citizens of Slovakia, the Sme daily reported.

The political advertisement was broadcast on M1 after the main evening news broadcast. The commercial, produced by the Rákoczi Association, calls on Hungarians from Felvidék (the vernacular Hungarian name for Slovakia) to vote in Slovakia’s March 10 general elections.

“The fates of people, as well as their survival, are in our hands,” stated the advertisement, which advised voters to make use of their basic rights and to vote in the biggest possible number for “candidates of Hungarian fellowship”, Sme wrote.

The advertisement did not name any specific political party.
