The chief of the largest Slovak opposition right-wing party said on Tuesday he was ready to start talks with five other parties to form a majority government after an inconclusive election at the weekend.

Richard Sulik, of the libertarian and anti-immigration Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), said he believed he could find 87 seats in the 150-seat parliament if leftist Prime Minister Robert Fico, who has the first chance to form the next cabinet, fails to find enough support.
