Slovakia – The German Eurovision blog Eurofire reports that the general director of the Slovak national broadcaster, Vaclav Mika, went on record saying that his channel is still interested in participating in the Eurovision Song Contest. This comes as a small surprise as most observers thought Slovakia was likely to withdraw next year.
“Eurovision is one of the formats RSTV is interested in. At this point we do not know about the conditions for next year. As soon as they are clear we will decide on how to proceed,” said Mika in a chat at aktualne.sk. In the last years Slovakia was always ambiguous about its participation in Eurovision, often announcing withdrawal before ultimately changing their mind. The central European country has yet to make it past the semi-final.
