Poll: People would vote for new party

A NEW POLL carried out by the MVK agency for the SME daily suggested that 31 percent of people in Slovakia would be willing to vote for a new political party, provided they agreed with the party's programme.

Sociologist Pavel Haulík noted, however, that this result does suggest that this number of people would actually support the creation of a new party.

According to the poll, students are the most inclined to support a new party, as are people who live in big cities, particularly in the Bratislava and Trenčín regions.

The Slovak Interior Ministry currently registers 42 political parties and movements in the country, down from 117 in 2004 following measures to eliminate non-functioning organizations.

Slovak voters are scheduled to go to the polls for general elections in September this year.
