The Slovaks were awakened by a murder of a journalist. The country is heading in the direction of Orban’s Hungary

The murder of a journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée boosted a political crisis in Slovakia. Sociologist Michal Vašečka, from the Bratislava International School of Liberal Arts (BISLA), claims that we’re at a risk of returning to the times of “Meciarism” of the ‘90s and social polarisation. The society did not notice that Slovakia was heading in the direction of Orban’s Hungary and Kuciak’s murder is now the turning point, claims Vašečka on the TV programme “Devadesátka ČT24”. The Prime Minister Robert Fico (Smer-SD) is still quite popular but he can lose loyalty of his own members of the Parliament – in such case, the question is: where would he reach for support.
