Bratislava, 16.11.2009 7:13, (ROMEA/RPA)

Saturday’s regional elections in Slovakia resulted in victories for the left-wing government coalition led by the Směr-SD party of Slovak PM Robert Fico. The most successful Romani candidates ran in Prešov region for the Roma Coalition Party (Strana romské koalice - SRK). Only one made it into the regional parliament, Miroslav Daňo, with 2 491 votes from the district of Vranov nad Topľou, reports the Roma Press Agency (Romská tisková agentura RPA - www.rpa.sk).

Ladislav Čonka (SRK) lost by only a few votes, coming in two places behind the other candidates elected in Vranov with 2 273 votes. Štefan Kali (SRK) received 2 022 votes and Alfonz Kali (SRK) 1 988 votes. Daňa’s seat is the sole gain for SRK even though it ran a total of 57 candidates in Banskobystrický region, Košice region, and Prešov region.

The Roma Initiative of Slovakia (Romská iniciativa Slovenska - RIS) ran candidates for regional parliament as well as three candidates for regional administrator without success. In Košice, Jozef Červeňák ran for administrator on the RIS ticket and received 4.1 % of the vote (5 363 votes). The winning candidate, Zdenko Trebuľa, received 60.25 % of the turnout. Only 22.93 % of registered voters went to the polls there.

In Prešov, 26.31 % of registered voters went to the polls, where the RIS candidate Radoslav Ščuka won 3 223 votes, or 2.13 % of the vote. RIS also ran a candidate in Banskobystrický region, Emil Samko, who won 1.84 % of the vote with 2 499 votes. Voter turnout there was 27.06 %, RPA reports.
