Poll: 85 Percent of Slovaks favour anti-discrimination bill

According to a recent IVO poll 85 percent of Slovaks agree with the recent approval by Parliament of the Anti-discrimination Act.

Four percent disagreed with the bill and 11 percent of respondents had no specific opinion.

The survey, which took place from September 8-14, included a sample of 1,016 adults, according to the TASR news wire.

"Support for the anti-discrimination law is so universal that different opinions between social-demographic groups are not apparent," says the IVO report.

However, the greatest support for the European Union-inspired legislation is among people with a high level of education. IVO also notes that support crosses party lines.
