Mihok: Government of National Responsibility Needed

SOPK President Mihok on the general election outcome

Bratislava, March 6 (TASR) – The results of the general election need to be respected, as they came out of a democratic vote by the citizens of Slovakia, chairman of the Slovak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SOPK) Peter Mihok told TASR on Sunday.

At the same time the results showed that something probably needs to be changed in Slovakia. It’s important that a government of national responsibility is created based on the election outcome, stated Mihok, stressing that this is necessary vis-a-vis Slovak citizens and other countries and in the context of Slovakia’s EU Presidency in the second half of this year.

According to the Slovak Statistics Office’s unofficial preliminary results, the election was won by Smer-SD on 28.28 percent. Apart from Smer, another seven parties made it into Parliament: Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) – 12.10 percent, OLaNO-NOVA – 11.02 percent, the Slovak National Party (SNS) – 8.64 percent, Kotleba-People’s Party Our Slovakia (LSNS) – 8.04 percent, We Are Family-Boris Kollar – 6.62 percent, Most-Hid – 6.5 percent and Siet – 5.6 percent.
