A MAJORITY of people would prefer parliamentary elections to take place before the end of the regular electoral term in September 2006, according to a Markant agency survey prepared for the SME daily.
According to the poll, 46 percent of respondents prefer March 2006 elections while 26 percent are in favour of the regularly scheduled September date. Just 8 percent want June elections as the opposition Movement for Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) proposes.
Twenty-two percent were unsure about when they would like parliamentary elections to be held.
The survey shows that the Hungarian minority (67 percent) tends to prefer early elections to Slovaks (45 percent). Bratislava citizens (50 percent) favoured the idea more than people living in Košice (9 percent).
