A Few Comments After
Category : Uncategorized
Looking at the unofficial results, the first thought coming to my mind is one person should definitely resign from his position – the director of MVK. A gap of almost 7% with the winner party – that sure is not a statistical error.
As for the results:
SMER – congratulations. Seriously. Whatever we might think about the party and PM personally, getting more than in 2006 is THE success. Fortunately for the country, the campaign of SMER was successful way too much – in its attempt to steal Meciars (and to some extent Slotas) voters.
SDKU – shame on the party. They had 4 years of opposition, thousand scandal bullets to fire at SMER, the global crisis basically on their side… however, SDKU convinced less people than 4 years ago. Radicova would join Haulik on his way to pension, had Slovakia been a normal country. Unfortunately under current circumstances a normal person must hope she becomes a new PM.
SaS – Good job. Although the preferential votes indicate that the party is really one-man based
SMK – this really is the case when one gets what he deserves
HZDS – too much too late
SNS – is it possible to bleed out after crying bloody tears?
As my colleague and friend from university has already said, the results as a whole calls for a nation´s deep self-reflection, not a celebration. No need to mention that creating a new coalition will be another funny story…
