The Slovak Republic was formed on 1 January 1993 as a sovereign democratic state with parliamentary form of government. The head of state is the president elected for a five-year term by direct popular vote. The legislative power lies with the National Council of the Slovak Republic composed of 150 members elected for a 4-year term. The supreme body of executive power is the government headed by the Primer Minister.
ABOUT TOWN PRIEVIDZA
The first written document about Prievidza (Preuigan) appeared in a document from the Hungarian king Koloman in 1113, confirming property owned by a Benedictine abbey at Zobor. An advantageous geographic position contributed to the towns establishment and development. Prievidza lay at the intersection of two important commercial roads, which suggests that Prievidza is an ancient Slavic settlement.
The most important source covering Prievidzas medieval history can be, without doubt, a charter issued on 28 January 1383 for the town, which emphasizes that the Prievidza locality was one of the free royal cities.
