Reuters: Slovak underdog has chance to beat PM Fico in presidential vote
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/29/us-slovakia-election-idUSBREA2S00220140329

Excerpt:
Slovakia's political heavyweight Prime Minister Robert Fico faces the threat of his biggest defeat at the ballot box from an underdog philanthropist in presidential election runoff on Saturday.

Voters in the central European country gave the center-left leader a disappointingly lukewarm endorsement in the first round of voting two weeks ago amid fear the 49-year-old would amass too much power, which some see as unhealthy for democratic checks and balances.

In the second round, bookmakers give an edge to political newcomer Andrej Kiska, a businessman turned philanthropist who is riding on the wave of anti-Fico sentiment among right-wing voters as well as distrust in mainstream political parties suspected of complicity in graft scandals.

A Fico victory would give his center-left Smer party full control of all the main power centers in the euro zone country of 5.5 million, even if the Slovak constitution does not grant the president himself a huge political role.

Fico, who has led the country since sweeping a parliamentary election in 2012, won 28 percent of the vote to Kiska's 24 percent on Saturday, a smaller margin than opinion polls had indicated. There have been no fresh polls since the first round.

Campaigning has turned tough in the final weeks. Fico accused Kiska of usury in consumer lending firms he used to own, for which Kiska filed a criminal complaint against his opponent.

Fico has also accused Kiska, an independent candidate with no party of his own, of being close to Church of Scientology, founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard in 1954. Scientology is not registered in mostly Catholic Slovakia.

Kiska denied any close links to Scientology, which critics describe as a cult that harasses people who try to quit.

Reuters: Political newcomer Kiska trounces PM Fico in Slovak presidential election
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/30/us-slovakia-election-idUSBREA2S0NN20140330

Excerpt:
Philanthropist and former businessman Andrej Kiska trounced Prime Minister Robert Fico in Slovakia's presidential election on Saturday as voters feared Fico and his center-left party would amass too much power.

Results from over 99 percent of voting districts showed the politically unaffiliated Kiska leading the center-left prime minister by 59.4 percent to 40.6 percent.

Kiska made millions of dollars through consumer credit companies that he sold a decade ago, setting up a charity to help families with ill children.


Fico and other critics say he is a political amateur with an uncertain political stance, who made money in the past on loans they said charged unfairly high rates of interest.


Kiska denies that accusation, as well as Fico's allegations he had close links with people from the Church of Scientology, which critics in the mainly Catholic country see as a sect.

Slovak President Andrej Kiska faced accusations of being close to Scientology

https://whyweprotest.net/community/...scientology-rumours.53056/page-2#post-2440533
So is there any evidence that Andrej Kiska was ever affiliated with the cult, or was this election campaign just another example of it being a terrible insult to be accused of being a Scientologist?

Kiska also faced accusations of being close to the Church of Scientology, for which Fico called him "a security risk." Kiska has dismissed allegiance to the church.

Re: Is Slovak Prime Minister & Presidential candidate Andrej Kiska tied to Scientolog

There is a follow-up article on another website that contains a new allegation I had not read before about Andrej Kiska, the new President of Slovakia:

Voltairenet: Church of Scientology, Arseni Yatseniouk and Andrej Kiska
http://www.voltairenet.org/article183092.html

Excerpt:
Andrej Kiska denied belonging to the Church of Scientology and filed a criminal libel complaint against his challenger, Prime Minister Robert Fico. However, the billionaire and forthcoming President of the Slovak Republic had the managers of his companies undergo training provided by the Hubbard School of Administration and the World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE). His biography, Take life into your own hands, was published by Scientologist businessman and publisher, Ladislav Pavlik, who also wrote the preface.

Voice of Russia Accuses Ukrainian PM of Being Mind-Controlled by Scientology

The psychological warfare between Ukraine and Russia went to a totally different level today, with the Kremlin-controlled Voice of Russia accusing the acting leader of the Ukraine of being “controlled” by Scientologists. It sounds like a South Park episode, but it is actually a Real Russian News Story, which you can really read on this real news source, for real.

In an NPR-ish interview with “Russian-American anti-cult activist” Professor Alexander Dvorkin, the station noted that Arseniy Yatsenyuk, the acting prime minister of Ukraine, had apparently paid for multiple Scientology courses when he was younger, “before his political career.” Dvorkin describes auditing thusly: <snip>
...
Thankfully, the station had some shred of credibility, stopping short of accusing Yatsenyuk of being mind-controlled by Xenu, the Galactic Overlord that used thetans to control the minds of humanity. (At least the debunked story of Russian forces capturing a US drone was somewhat plausible.)
