Smer wants to cooperate in the municipal and county elections mainly with Hlas and the CIS. Robert Fico said the first names of the candidates could be known in March.
“We are not a party that should be in the habit of excluding anyone from possible cooperation,” he said, adding that some districts in the Prešov region have already announced cooperation with, for example, the non-parliamentary KDH. “The Hungarian coalition will be active in the Košice region, maybe an agreement will be reached in some districts as well,” he added.

“We know that unless we are represented in cities, towns and counties, we can hardly talk about a functional party,” Fico added.
The names of the candidates who will be known at the time plan to be gradually introduced in selected events on International Women’s Day, which Smer wants to organize in Slovakia 32. (tasr)
