The article reports that political risk has increased sharply in Slovakia after the expulsion of the New Civic Alliance from the ruling coalition. The risk of political breakdown and early elections has nevertheless clearly increased. Indeed, during the recent legislative deadlock, one of the three remaining coalition parties, the Hungarian Coalition, briefly joined calls for an early poll. The opposition is pushing for parliament to hold a vote in late October on bringing forward the election to April. With 90 votes required to carry the motion, the coalition parties themselves hold the key to its success or failure.
