Poll call for Slovakia
SLOVAK Prime Minister Robert Fico is facing pressure to agree to an early election with his coalition crumbling in the face of mass protests.
The demonstrations have been prompted by the murder of a young journalist who specialised in exposing corruption.
The central European nation stumbled into crisis late last month with the killing of Jan Kuciak, who focused on tax fraud involving politically connected businessmen, and Slovakia’s interior minister resigned on Monday.
The protests have been the largest since the end of communist rule nearly 30 years ago.
