Poll finds favour for state-owned SND

A NEW poll shows that the majority of Slovak respondents want the new Slovak National Theatre building (SND), which is currently undergoing construction, to be financed by the state, the daily Pravda reported.

The poll was carried out by the Median SK research agency. Twenty seven percent of respondents chose the answer "definitely yes", and 37.8 percent replied "mostly yes".

A minority of respondents believe the building should be financed from alternative sources, with 20.1 percent saying "mostly no" and 9.1 percent saying "definitely no".
