The first round of presidential elections will be held on Saturday, March 23, and in the event of his holding, the second round will be held on April 6. 11 candidates are running for the post of head of state.

Television Markíza was supposed to broadcast the pre-election duel of two candidates for the president of the Slovak Republic, Krisztián Forró and Ján Kubiš, in its program Na telo today. That didn’t happen, Kubiš apologized at the last minute because of his obligations abroad.

The television thus used the institution of the empty chair, which means that the “discussion” took place even in Kubiš’s absence. Both candidates were to have 20 minutes for the debate.

Forró and Kubiš are in approximately the same numbers in the polls – 2.8 percent of respondents would vote for Forró in the latest survey by the Ipsos agency, 2.4 percent for Ján Kubiš.
