Vladimír Mečiar was the first Minister of Interior post the Velvet Revolution of 1989 and the threetime re-elected Prime Minister of Slovakia. Vladimír Mečiar was an undeniably charismatic politician „ loved by the nation“ and his profound influence on the contemporary political climate of Slovakia cannot be doubted.

It was this governance which ruled Slovakia out of the process of being accepted in the EU and NATO.
