    Um, Smer - the governing party that has won with but lost its majority - isn't "far right". It's left wing, albeit with reservations about immigration, and a member of the Party of European Socialists.

    Funny how on TSR someone who is a 'leftist' is described as being on the 'far- right'.... Seems to me that OP can't even read the article he has linked.

    Its actually quite sad how this migrant crisis has resulted in many racist, xenophobic right-wing parties across Europe gaining support and seats in their Parliaments, when beforehand nobody was taking them seriously.

    People are so fickle.

    They're the successor party that the Slovak section of the Communist Party merged into. That's not right-wing by any comparison.

    They're quite probably xenophobic. Something that afflicts the left and right equally. Look at Keir Hardie.

    Smer is left-wing according to easter european standards. The left in Eastern E. is different thoose in West in that they do not care about indentity politics, their main focus are labour and their social right. "Opresse brown people" is foreign to them.

    Smer is an ideologicall descendant of the Slowak section of the Communist Party.
