Bratislava, March 6 (TASR) – Marian Kotleba, leader of the far-right Kotleba-People’s Party Our Slovakia (LSNS), has described the results of the 2016 general election as the start of new era in Slovakia, TASR learnt on Sunday.

[According to preliminary results, LSNS gained 8.04-percent support in Saturday’s general election, meaning that it will receive seats in parliament. – ed. note]

Kotleba, speaking on TV Markiza on Sunday, said that he believes his party will form part of a government one day.

“The people have decided, and I think that this is the beginning of a new era in Slovakia. I hope that we’ll succeed in rescuing Slovakia from where it’s heading. The government keeps favouring foreign policies over the interests of Slovak citizens,” said Kotleba.
