Smer still leads Slovak EP election polls


AN OPINION poll carried out by the Markant agency for Live! magazine in May showed that the opposition party Smer would win the most votes in the upcoming elections to the European Parliament.

The vote to elect 14 MEPs will take place on June 13.

According to the private news agency SITA, Smer would win the election with 18.6 percent, thus gaining three MEP posts, followed by the ruling Slovak Democratic and Christian Union with 13.6 percent. The Movement for Democratic Slovakia would end third with 12.3 percent and the Christian Democrats would score 10.2 percent. The New Citizen's Alliance would win 9.4 percent. Each of the four latter parties would thus take two seats in the EP.

The Free Forum party would get one post for their 8.6 percent support in the election, and the Hungarian Coalition Party would also have one MEP for their 7.9 percent. Finally, the coalition of national parties - the Slovak National Party and the Real Slovak National Party - would also gain one seat, winning 6.8 percent support.
