ABOUT THE EVENT
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 is a liberal pro-European party that advocates for areas such as equality, a just society, and sustainability. Last year, Progresivne Slovensko’s Zuzana Čaputová became 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 Slovak Liberals 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!
