Official election campaign starts

THE CAMPAIGN leading up to the June 17 general elections was officially launched on May 27.

Political parties now have three weeks to try to woo voters, many of whom, polls suggest, are still undecided.

Apart from the usual campaign rallies, parties can advertise in public and private media, including TV and radio stations.

The election campaign actually began several weeks ago, with election posters and billboards seen all over the country and party meetings being held at a furious pace in most towns, the Pravda daily wrote.

Twenty-one parties are competing for seats in parliament in the upcoming elections. According to the latest opinion polls, eight of them have a realistic chance of winning seats.

The left-wing Smer is clearly in the lead, with around 30 percent support. No other party has more than 12 percent.
