The only major political party in Slovakia to have supported the current nonwhite “refugee” invasion of Europe—the Krestanskodemokratické hnutie (Christian Democratic Movement, KDH) has been swept from parliament in that country’s elections, losing all sixteen of its seats.
The KDH is a member of the European People’s Party (EPP), which includes Angela Merkel’s Christlich Demokratische Union Deutschlands (CDU), Austria’s ruling Österreichische Volkspartei (ÖVP), and Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party.
As expected, current Prime Minister Robert Fico’s center-left Smer–sociálna demokracia (Direction–Social Democracy, or Smer-SD) party came first in the polls, obtaining 28.3 percent of the vote and forty-nine seats. This was however a big drop for that party, which lost thirty-four seats in the 150-seat parliament.

This means that Fico will now have to seek partners from within the seven other parties which won seats in yesterday’s election. These parties range from the center-right to the nationalist.
The Sloboda a Solidarita (Freedom and Solidarity, SaS) center-right party came second with 12.1 percent of the vote, taking twenty-one seats, up from their previous ten.
SaS is led by the outspoken economist Richard Sulík, who, as a fluent German speaker, is famous for appearing on German TV programs denigrating Merkel and other German pro-invasion politicians as “soft in the head” and accusing them of being “wimps for not defending their borders.”
He also enraged the German liberals by telling them that he did “not want to live in a Europe where more Muslims are born than Christians—and I’m an atheist.”

The third-placed party was Obyčajní Ľudia a nezávislé osobnosti (Ordinary People and Independent Personalities, OĽaNO), an independent entity which polled 11 percent, winning nineteen seats, up three from the previous election.
OĽaNO is the “softest” party on the invasion issue, but is also opposed to the principle of mass migration. Its party program says that “Europe cannot accept the abuse of its social system or erosion of the foundations that underpin European civilization.”
Fourth place went to the Slovak National Party (Slovenská národná strana, SNS), a nationalist party strongly opposed to the invasion, entered the parliament with 8.6 percent of the vote, winning fifteen seats, up from zero last time.

The controlled media, which reviles the SNS as “far right,” had hardly got over the shock of that party entering parliament when the news broke that the Ľudová strana—Naše Slovensko (People’s Party—Our Slovakia, ĽSNS) had polled 8 percent of the vote, winning fourteen seats, and was placed fifth in the election.
Led by firebrand Marian Kotleba, who has been governor of the Banská Bystrica region since November 2013, the ĽSNS is ardently nationalistic with a political program which includes widening freedom of speech, the establishment of a home guard, the withdrawal of all Slovak military missions from abroad, an exit from the European Monetary Union and NATO, the restriction of immigration, and the banning of homosexual marriages.
As can be imagined, this perfectly sensible set of policies is regarded by the controlled media with undisguised hatred, and endless vitriol and smears can now be expected after the ĽSNS’s shock entry into parliament.

Sixth place went to the brand new Sme rodina (We Are a Family) party, led by well-known businessman Boris Kollár, which won 6.6 percent of the vote and eleven seats in its first foray into national elections.
Kollár is regularly scandalized in the media as a “multiple father” because he has nine children with eight different women, but he is equally well-known for his opposition to mass immigration and “foreign cultures.”
Seventh place went to the Most-Híd party (from the Slovak and Hungarian words for “bridge”), which polled 6.5 percent of the vote. It took eleven seats, down two from its previous total. Most–Híd is an inter-ethnic political party in Slovakia, which, as its name implies, seeks greater cooperation between the country’s Hungarian minority and ethnic Slovaks.
Party leader Béla Bugár is the only remaining political leader in the parliament to go on record as saying that Slovakia should accept “asylum seekers” on an individual basis, but has also criticized the EU for failing to “properly address the entire asylum procedure.”
Eighth—and last placed—was the brand new Sieť (Network) party which polled 5.6 percent, winning ten seats. It is a center-right party, led by Radoslav Procházka, who is on record as rejecting the EU “refugee quota” system and as saying that the “only sustainable solution” is to ensure that the “refugees live in dignity in their [own] homelands.”
It is thus from these parties that a government must be formed. Fico is likely to start by approaching the SNS for an alliance, as this will leave him only five seats short of a majority. However, any other combination of alliances is possible, and it is not inconceivable that Fico’s center-right opponents could even join together to form a new government without him.
