Smer still on top

Nearly 27 percent of the Slovaks are not supportive of any political party, reads a poll with 1,227 respondents by the Statistics Office's Institute for Public Opinion Research (UVVM).

Smer leads the UVVM popularity chart with 23.1 percent followed by Vladimír Mečiar's Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) with 17 percent and Mikuláš Dzurinda's Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ).

More than 11 percent gave their support to the Christian Democrats (KDH) and 10.5 percent would vote for the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) were elections held today.

The New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) and the Slovak Communist Party (KSS) would also make it to parliament collecting more than 5 percent support. ANO would get 9.5 and the KSS 6.2 percent.
