    BRATISLAVA: Prime Minister Robert Fico and millionaire-philanthropist Andrej Kiska will face off March 29 in the second round of Slovakia’s presidential election after clinching the top two spots in voting on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). Fico scored 28 percent of the vote in round one compared to Kiska’s 24 percent, the SME newspaper reported, based on complete results from the election commission. The prospect of Fico and his Smer-Social Democrats monopolizing power has galvanized both politicians and voters in the country of 5.4 million, which joined the European Union in 2004 and the eurozone in 2009.
