politics and government of
Slovakia

Parliamentary elections were held in Slovakia on 5 and 6 June 1992 alongside federal elections. The Movement for a Democratic Slovakia emerged as the largest party, winning 74 of the 150 seats in the National Council and forming a minority government under Vladimír Mečiar. The threshold had been raised from 3% (for the Slovak parliamentary election in 1990) to 5%.

In 1993, the Slovak National Party joined the government led by Prime Minister Mečiar. After a number of MPs left both parties of the ruling coalition, the Mečiar cabinet was brought down by a vote of non-confidence in March 1994. A coalition led by Jozef Moravčík, the former Czechoslovak and Slovak Foreign Minister, led the country to early elections.
