HALF of the eight regional councils in Slovakia will be dominated by councillors of the ruling Smer party who were elected into the seats as Smer candidates or in coalitions with the Christian Democrats (KDH).
Smer will have the strongest position in the Prešov regional council (35 seats out of 62 in total) and in Trenčín Region (25/45). Meanwhile, in Banská Bystrica Region, where Smer ran in an alliance with the KDH, the coalition received 25 out of 49 seats, and the same coalition will also dominate the Nitra regional council (32/54).
Conversely, Smer will have only one seat in the 44-member regional parliament, which will be dominated by the right.
In Trnava, Smer will have 12 councillors out of 40, in Žilina 19 out of 57, and in Košice 26 out of 57.
