Nato support over 50%

An early December survey by the statistics office found that 51% of the 1,002 respondents were in favour of Slovakia’s joining Nato, a rise of almost 10 percentage points from June this year. Most of the increase came among supporters of the opposition HZDS and SNS parties, older people and those with only elementary school education. The HZDS has made Nato integration a public priority since early this year.
