Poll: No to early elections

SLOVAKS do not want early elections, although several surveys showed that as much as 80 percent of the electorate is not content with the current cabinet.

A new survey by the Slovak Statistics Office showed that only 35 percent of people were in favour of early elections.

Paradoxically, as many as 53 percent of the respondents supported the petition for a referendum on early elections organized by the country's trade unions, the Slovak daily Pravda wrote on December 18.

The new survey also showed that 14 percent of people would support early elections if they were convinced that the elections' winners would be able to solve the country's economic situation.
