Strong support for EU, less for NATO

According to a poll by the National Education Centre's Culture and Public Opinion Research Institute, 79.1 per cent of Slovaks would vote in favor of joining the EU, compared to 47.8 per cent who would vote in favor of joining NATO. Only about 3 per cent are undecided.

More than three-quarters of the adult population intend to vote in May's referendum on EU entry, the poll showed, while less than the 50 per cent needed to validate the vote would take part in a referendum on entry to NATO.
