Abstract

Slovakia held the second round of voting in its presidential election on 29 March. The result saw the country’s prime minister, Robert Fico, defeated by an independent candidate, Andrej Kiska. Daniel Kral writes that Fico’s defeat was in part a function of the electorate’s fear that his party, Smer-SD, could come to dominate the country’s politics. Although Kiska now has a strong democratic mandate, he will nevertheless find it difficult to exert real power given his lack of support in parliament.
