    > TOPOLCANY, Slovakia – Slovakia's far right leader began the year on trial on charges of spreading hate but could end up as kingmaker in a tight parliamentary election next week, adding to nationalist challenges confronting the European Union.

    > With two small parties now in the ruling coalition at risk of failing to clear the 5% threshold of votes required for parliamentary seats, Smer may be forced to resort to an at least informal deal with the far right to avoid losing power.

    > RESPECT FOR WARTIME NAZI PUPPET REGIME. Kotleba's party has voiced respect in the past for Slovakia's World War Two Nazi puppet regime whose leader, Jozef Tiso, helped tens of thousands of Slovak Jews to be deported to Nazi death camps and was later tried for treason.
