Here are some unscientific predictions (but then again remember there is no such thing as a scientific prediction)
- Robert Fico the current PM will be re-elected (90%) but probably with more right-leaning coalition partners.
- Taxes: "He emphasised that the government had not increased taxes (his measures are fiscally neutral) and added that any new government taking office after the June parliamentary elections must continue this trend. "
- Vladimir Meciar is heading towards political oblivion without the 5% to make it to parliament (good riddance).
In other news, results of a telephone survey carried out by Polis Slovakia agency show that most people would welcome seeing a leftist-rightist government after the parliamentary elections in June. The survey was carried out on March 13-16 of this year on a representative sample of 1,280 respondents Based on its results, 38 percent of those polled want Slovakia to have a leftist-rightist government after the elections, 18.7 percent of the respondents want a rightist government and 12.9 percent of people a leftist one. More than one in five participants do not care about the orientation of the government after the elections, while one in ten respondents could not answer the question.
I generally believe that Fico got some big an important things right (euro, taxation etc) and alot of smaller things wrong and very wrong. The coalition parties he chose were the worst possible.
