Matchmaker for voters online

A SIMPLE online test is now available to help match voters with the political party that best suits their beliefs, the Týždeň weekly wrote.

The test can be found at politickysupermarket.sk and was prepared by the F A Hayek Foundation.

Based on the election programs, the foundation prepared a map of the political spectrum in Slovakia showing the Slovak Communist Party as the farthest left, followed by the Slovak National Party and Smer.

The Movement for a Democratic Slovakia, Movement for Democracy and the Free Forum, all formerly from the left, lie near the centre.

The centre is now made up of the Hungarian Coalition Party, the Christian Democratic Movement and the New Citizens' Alliance. Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda's Slovak Democratic and Christian Union is slightly to the right.
