Slovakia's strongest governing party Smer-SD would have won a general election held in the first two months of this year with 46.9-percent of the vote, indicates an opinion poll out on March 19.

The survey, conducted by the Median SK agency in January and February on a sample of 1,308 respondents, further found that the opposition SDKÚ-DS would have come in second at 11.94 percent, followed by the co-ruling Slovak National Party (SNS) at 11.85 percent. Next came the co-ruling ĽS-HZDS at 9.4 percent, the ethnic-Hungarian SMK at 8.3 percent and the Christian Democrats (KDH) at 7.8 percent.

Of the respondents, 30.4 percent said that they would definitely have voted the next day, while 25.6 percent indicated that they would probably have done so. As many as 27 percent would definitely not have voted, 11 percent probably wouldn't have gone to the polls and 6.1 percent were undecided. TASR
