Unlike the parliamentary elections, Slovaks are not allowed to vote from abroad when other types of elections are held.
A group of 37 MPs have therefore turned to the Constitutional Court. They claimed the fundamental rights and freedoms of Slovak citizens living abroad, namely the right to participation in the governance of public affairs, were breached.
The Constitutional Court, however, decided on February 5 to turn down their complaint.
“The Constitutional Court refused the proposal from 37 MPs because it did not meet all the legal requirements,” the Constitutional Court spokesperson Martina Ferencová told SITA.
