The Slovak Parliament and EU Affairs: In Need of a Wake-Up Call
The Slovak Republic has been in existence since 1993. It is a parliamentary democracy with a multi-party system, with parliamentary control of the executive formally enshrined in its constitution. The Slovak Republic started its path to membership of the European Union (EU) by submitting an application in 1995. The accession process was halted by the EU in 1997 due to the domestic political policies of the administration of Vladimír Mečiar (1994–1998).1 After the 1998 election, a majority administration made up of the previous opposition resumed the integration efforts of the Slovak Republic.
