Smer leader Robert Fico agrees to form a coalition government with the left-wing Hlas and ultranationalist Slovak National Party, paving the way for Fico to become Prime Minister of Slovakia for a fourth time.
Authorities in Slovakia charge four people with murdering investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée. The killings sparked widespread anti-corruption protests and forced the resignation of Prime Minister Robert Fico.
Prime Minister Robert Fico's Smer party won 28.3 percent of the vote, but with just 49 seats, lost its majority in the 150-member parliament. The Freedom and Solidarity party won 21 seats (12.1%), and the Ordinary People party took 19 seats (11.0%).
Voters in Slovakia choose representatives for all 150 National Council seats. While anti-migrant Prime Minister Robert Fico's Smer party is expected to lose its parliamentary majority, it should be in position to lead a coalition government.
Voters go to the polls in Slovakia with partial results showing that Prime Minister Robert Fico and businessman-turned philanthropist Andrej Kiska are likely to be the two contenders in the second round.
