Although more Slovaks came to the polling stations during the recent EP election, the turnout belonged to the lowest in the European Union.
Even though the results from some countries are still unofficial, it is not probable that Slovakia’s position will change, the Sme daily reported.
The turnout in Slovakia was 22.74 percent of eligible voters, which is 9.69 percentage points more than in 2014. The EU average was 50.95 percent, up from 42.54 percent in 2014.
The second lowest turnout was in Slovenia (28.29 percent), while the Czech Republic reported the third lowest turnout (28.72 percent).
The most voters came to the polling stations in Belgium (89 percent), according to the preliminary results.
