On Monday, the leader of France's far-right National Rally party, Marine Le Pen, visited the Slovak capital Bratislava, where she took part in the conference of the Movement for a Europe of Nations and Freedom, which is a nationalist, Eurosceptic party in the European parliament. As the france24.com portal wrote, "Le Pen and Mateo Salvini, Italy's Deputy Prime Minister and leader of its nationalist League party, have both been courting fellow hard-right populists across the continent." In Slovakia, the formation found a partner in the opposition We Are Family party of the controversial businessman Boris Kollár. According to sociologist Michal Vašečka, this cooperation can complicate the situation on the Slovak domestic political scene and "the vision of opposition parties about possible post-election cooperation after the next parliamentary elections," said Vašečka.
