The article focuses on questionable amendment to the Electoral Law in the Slovak Republic adopted in response to the delayed withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Brexit). Following the new redistribution of seats in the European Parliament reflecting the planned leave of the United Kingdom, such amendment to the Electoral Law determines which one of 14 members of the European Parliament elected in Slovakia will not take up his mandate until legal effects of Brexit occur. However, the European elections in May 2019 showed that the application of the amendment to the Slovak Electoral Law can lead to a jeopardy of the principle of equal suffrage, which is a common value for all democratic states, not just those who are Member States of the European Union.
