Coalition popularity holding firm

Coalition parties have seen only a small drop in popularity six months after they took office, according to the latest opinion poll figures from the Slovak Statistics Office.

Leader of the coalition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), Pavol Hrušovský, thinks that the opposition is more reasonable than in previous parliaments. "The [change in] culture of dialogue and politics has been shown in the much more effective work of parliament," he said.

Hrušovský also praised the coalition for stability, despite criticism of coalition relations from ANO deputy leader Ľubomír Lintner.
