Polls place Schuster in lead

According to the results of an April 16 - 19 opinion poll on presidential elections conducted by the independent polling agency MVK in Bratislava, Rudolf Schuster, the joint candidate of the ruling coalition, would win the ballot with 31.6% of popular support.
Schuster's biggest rival, former Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar, represents the opposition HZDS party, would finish behind Schuster with 24% of votes, followed by an independent candidate and former film diva Magda Vášáryová with 18%.
Other candidates were left far behind the leading ones. Chairman of the far-right Slovak National Party Ján Slota would end up with 9.7%, followed by one-time Slovak President Michal Kováč (6.7%), and former HZDS member and diplomat Ivan Mjartan (2.5%).
