The Rise Of The Right In Slovakia
A neo- Nazi party and its leader made a strong showing in Slovakia’s recent elections, winning enough votes to gain 14 seats in parliament.
Marian Kotleba, the leader of the ultra-nationalist People’s Party-Our Slovakia, actually, until recently, used to dress in a uniform that resembled those worn by the country’s Nazi government in power during WWII. The party that won the election, the ruling party, also campaigned on an anti-migrant ticket.
