More than a third of Slovaks think that the situation in their country is now worse than they expected immediately after the March election, according to the results of a survey carried out by the MVK agency between June 20 and 27 on a sample of 1,124 respondents.

Asked how they view post-election developments in the country when compared to their original expectations, more than a third of respondents (36.4 percent) said that the situation was worse than they expected. Fewer than 10 percent of respondents thought the opposite, while 24 percent said that current developments were exactly what they anticipated, the poll found, as reported by the TASR newswire. Around the same number of respondents (23 percent) stated that developments were not surprising but that they viewed them as negative.

On Thursday, July 12, the current government marked exactly 100 days since its formation.
