Bratislava, March 14 (TASR) – Agreement on a snap election might come soon, Most-Hid caucus vice-chair Andrej Hrnciar told journalists on Wednesday.

“Most-Hid is holding talks on a snap election, and I believe the talks will come to a successful end as soon as possible,” said Hrnciar, adding that it might be a question of several hours, or a few days at most.
Although the governing coalition parties haven’t yet officially agreed on a snap election, its dates are already being mentioned, including July 7, as well as in September. MP Miroslav Ciz (Smer-SD) confirmed for TASR that July 7 was mentioned in their caucus as one of the soonest possible terms. “However, nothing has been closed, negotiations are still underway,” said Ciz, stressing that several possibilities are being discussed.
A snap election is being demanded by the co-governing Most-Hid party, which wants to agree on the election with its coalition partners. The Most-Hid Republican Council decided on Monday (March 12) that the party will quit the governing coalition if the talks on a snap election fail.
