Bratislava, March 5 (TASR) – People casting their votes in the general election aren’t only choosing their representatives but also the country’s character, said Prime Minister and Smer-SD party chairman Robert Fico on Saturday.

“They have it in their own hands. I’ll respect whatever outcome there is,” stated Fico, adding that many parties might make it into parliament this time.

Fico cast his own vote at the polling station located in the primary school on Majernikova Street in Bratislava early in the morning. “It’s now a tradition for me and my family. We’d like to take care of some family stuff later, then I have to take the dog for a walk. But it’s also due to practical reasons because there are fewer people [at the polling station in the morning],” stated Fico.

Fico spent the final hours of the moratorium cleaning his office. Now he’s planning a family lunch and to do some exercise. “Around five or six o’clock we’ll start biting our nails at Smer-SD headquarters,” he stated.
