Chinese could produce e-cars in Slovakia - PM Robert Fico does not see election defeat - Poliačik leaves the strongest opposition party

These top three stories from Slovakia are a selection of headlines from a weekly overview that subscribers of The Slovak Spectator can read or listen to.

Slovakia is reportedly on the short-list for the Chinese carmaker Zhi Dou which wants to build its production plant in the region of central and south-eastern Europe.

PM Robert Fico does not see election defeat. In his reaction, he brushed off the loss of four regional governor posts and stressed that Smer has won 88 of regional councillors and claims that his party is the winner of the election. Deputy chairman Marek Maďarič, who serves as culture minister, meanwhile offered his resignation from the party leadership.

One of the founding members of Freedom and Solidarity party, Martin Poliačik, officially announced his departure from the party, due to the differing opinions between him and the party chair, Richard Sulík.
