In the first political support poll conducted since its July formation, the HZD opposition splinter group recorded 5.3 per cent public support, which in September elections would be enough to secure it seats in parliament. The HZDS party of Vladimír Mečiar, from where the HZD emerged, saw its support fall by the same margin, from 29.3 per cent in an earlier poll to 24 per cent.
