This former Communist Party politician briefly joined the Party of Civic Understanding before learning to be a political Independent and keeping office from 1999 until 2004 as the next President of Slovakia. Previously, he previously served as Loudspeaker of his country’s Country wide Council. Early in his politics career, he offered as Mayor from the Slovakian town of Košsnow. He and Ukrainian Chief executive Viktor Yuschenko had been two of the very most unpopular candidates to get re-election in the annals of their particular countries. In his 2004 re-election marketing campaign, Schuster received simply over seven percent of the full total vote; Yuschenko gained a straight lower percentage pursuing his own marketing campaign. He was created in Košsnow, Czechoslovakia, to a family group of Hungarian and German descent. His almost five-decade relationship to Irena Trojáková led to one boy and one girl. He and Michal Kovac both kept office as Chief executive of Slovakia.
