As noted, Fico’s party received just under a quarter of all votes: 22.94 percent. In second place are the liberals of progressive Slovakia, with 17.96 percent, giving them 32 seats in parliament. In third place is “Voice – Social Democracy”, with 14.7 percent and 27 seats in the National Council.
According to political scientists, Direction-Social Democracy can form a coalition with the participation of the country’s second social democratic party, Voice-Social Democracy, as well as the Slovak National Party (5.62 percent and 10 seats in parliament). Together, these three political forces have 79 seats in the National Council. If such an alliance is formed, Fico will be able to become Prime Minister of Slovakia again.
Let us remember that parliamentary elections were held in the country the day before. 68.4 percent of all citizens with the right to vote participated in them. And there are just over four million of them in the country. In total, about five and a half million people live in Slovakia.
Meanwhile, many European media outlets dedicated their front pages to the news of the victory of Robert Fico’s party in the Slovak parliament. And political analysts in publications comment on this event in every possible way and make forecasts.
