On Thursday 5 March 2020, ALDE Party in cooperation with the Friedrich Naumann Foundation Europe will host a Liberal Breakfast to discuss the results of the Slovakia elections. Our guest speaker for this event will be Slovak politician and Renew Europe MEP Martin Hojsík. The event will be moderated by Lucia Kleštincová.
Citizens in Slovakia will head to the polls on 29 February. At the moment, there are multiple parties across the political spectrum advocating for change in Slovakia, but exactly what that change looks like will depend on voters.
The current political climate in Slovakia is tense as the country becomes increasingly divided between pro-European progressives and the far-right. Cases of corruption over the years have created tension in the country, and this will certainly be on voter’s minds as they head to the polls at the end of the week. Progresívne Slovensko was founded in 2017 and is a liberal pro-European party that advocates for areas such as equality, a just society, and sustainability. The current president of Slovakia is Zuzana Čaputová, a Progresívne Slovensko politician who is the country’s first female head of state and rose to victory after fighting against corruption and advocating for justice after the death of journalist Ján Kuciak.
Which reforms do they propose for the upcoming years? Which political partners are they ready to work with? How will issues such as corruption and the rule of law influence voter’s choice?
Our next Liberal Breakfast aims to shed light on these and many other questions, so join us for a discussion with our distinguished speaker!
(Please note, due to speaker scheduling, the new date of the Liberal Breakfast is Thursday 5 March and we will start at the earlier time of 8h15 AM - doors open and a light breakfast will be served at 08h00 AM).
