The Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) has sent out its experts to Slovakia to monitor the February 29 parliamentary elections.
An election mission of eight experts will evaluate the preparation and course of elections, ensuring Slovakia adheres to international commitments and principles of the rule of law. The group will be paying attention to the implementation of election legislation and independence of the media landscape, too.
“The Slovak Republic will continue to defend and support the performance of this activity necessary to strengthen the democratic character of society,” Foreign Affairs Minister Miroslav Lajčák said about the OSCE mission.
