Only two political parties did not receive any donations in 2012, by their own account – the ruling Smer party and the opposition Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO).
Most-Híd received the most: €325,000, including €35,000 from Ján Ružička (Bratislava) and €30,000 each from Žilina-based company Motocentrum, Ladislav Földes, Ladislav Pisch, Ladislav Pethő, and Ján Genčík. Party chairman Béla Bugár and MPs Zsolt Simon, Árpád Érsek, Elemér Jakab, Tibor Bastrnák, Gábor Gál, László Solymos and József Nagy also contributed €10,000 each, the SITA newswire wrote.
The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) obtained €154,000, the Sme daily reported. The biggest single donation came from MEP and former ice hockey star Peter Šťastný.
The Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) declared gifts of €30,000 and Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) of €3,000.
