SMK backs Mikloško for president

THE HUNGARIAN Coalition Party (SMK) has decided to support František Mikloško, the Christian Democratic Movement's candidate for president.

SMK officials agreed that Mikloško's political record, opinions, and values most corresponded with those of the SMK, the Slovak daily Pravda wrote.

Despite the SMK decision, however, political analysts agreed that the strongest candidates remain Foreign Minister Eduard Kukan, Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) chairman Vladimír Mečiar, incumbent President Rudolf Schuster, and ex-HZDS member Ivan Gašparovič.

According to the most recent survey carried out by the MVK agency, Kukan leads in popularity with 26.3 percent support, followed by Mečiar, who scored 21.5 percent in the February poll. Schuster shares the third rank with Gašparovič; both scored 15.7 percent. Mikloško was fifth with 6.9 percent.
