HZDS remains on top in polls

The MVK polling agency on September 13 released the results of a poll it had done from September 4 to 11 on a representative group of 1,126 people. Respondents were asked the question: „If parliamentary elections were held this week, to which party or movement would you give your vote?“ Some 11.8% of voters said they would not participate in elections, while 15% said they didn‘t know who they would vote for. Opposition parties enjoyed 35.9% support, non-parliamentary parties 29.2%, and the parties of the current ruling coalition 35.8%, down from about 60% in their 1998 election victory.

The figures in the table are in percent. For the purposes of comparison we include a July poll by the same agency.
