HZD splinter party scores 5.3% support

IN THE first poll released since the formation of the Movement for Democracy (HZD) opposition party, a breakaway group from Vladimír Mečiar's former ruling HZDS, the HZD recorded 5.3 per cent voter support, just over the margin required to secure parliamentary representation after September elections.

In the poll, released August 1 by the Polis Slovakia agency, the HZDS fell from its previous 29.3 per cent to 24, although it remains Slovakia's strongest political force.
