The leftist ruling party has won the parliamentary election in Slovakia, after campaigning on an anti-migrant ticket, but will need coalition partners to form a majority government, according to results announced on Sunday. In a surprising development, a neo-Nazi party gained parliamentary seats for the first time. With the votes from 99.9 percent of the almost 6,000 polling stations counted by the Statistics Office Sunday, the Smer-Social Democracy party of Prime Minister Robert Fico is the winner with 28.3 percent of the vote, or 49 seats in the 150-seat Parliament. That represents a significant drop in support from the 2012 election when Smer took 44.4 percent and was able to govern alone. Fico acknowledged he had hoped for at least 4-5 percent more but still called it “a decent result.”Full Article: Ruling party wins Slovakia's election, neo-Nazis gain seats | The Sun News.
