The opposition SDKÚ placed second with 12.4 percent and the ruling SNS was the third strongest party, also with 12.4 percent. The ethnic Hungarian SMK received 10.7 percent. The opposition KDH followed with 9.2 percent and the governing ĽS-HZDS with 8 percent. Other parties did not get enough support to make it into parliament. SITA
