99 Percent – Civic Voice

99 Percent – Civic Voice[1] (Slovak: 99% – občiansky hlas, 99%) is a left-wing populist political party in Slovakia inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement.[2] It is jointly led by manager[clarification needed] Alena Dušatková, radio journalist Pavol Pavlík, and lawyer and former police investigator Peter Vačok.[3]

The party did not win any seat in the 2010 parliamentary election.[4] According to opinion polls, the party was expected to gain parliamentary representation in the 2012 parliamentary election;[5][6] but it failed to do so, with only 1.58% of the vote.
