Slovakia

Parliamentary elections were held in Slovakia on 30 September and 1 October 1994.[1] The early elections were necessary after the Vladimír Mečiar 1992 government had been recalled in March 1994 by the National Council and a new temporary government under Jozef Moravčík had been created at the same time.

The governing Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) lost seats, but remained the largest party in the National Council with over three times as many seats as the second-placed Common Choice, a left-wing alliance, which almost failed to enter the parliament despite its good performance in pre-election opinion polls. After the election, the HZDS formed a coalition with the Union of the Workers of Slovakia and the Slovak National Party.
