Miloslavov, November 4 (TASR) – Parliamentary Chairman Andrej Danko (Slovak National Party/SNS) voted in the regional elections in the village of Miloslavov near Bratislava on Saturday afternoon, stating that he’d like to see the new Bratislava regional authority deal with transport, education and social assistance.
“There are many problems, but I believe that the new governor will have enough strength and courage to tackle the problems,” said Danko.
“I live in Bratislava region, and I know what it means to be stuck in traffic jams and how desperate it is to be commuting for two hours,” said Danko.
According to Danko, education also needs to receive appropriate attention from the regional authority. “I was really taken aback when I saw some apprentice centres being replaced by malls,” he said.
The parliamentary chairman further urged voters to take part in the elections in all eight of Slovakia’s regions. “I always say that protests are ultimate desperate attempts for change in society, while it’s on these [election] days when people should make a reckoning with all politicians and decide how they feel about it,” added Danko.
