As many as 67.5 percent of Slovak citizens think that the country's entry into the European Union was the right step to take, reveals a survey published by the FOCUS agency out on May 1, the fourth anniversary of the move.

The poll, which was carried out on a sample of 1,080 respondents between April 1-8, 2008, also showed that 17.3 of those approached consider the decision to join the EU as misguided, while more than 15 percent said they didn't know, the TASR newswire wrote.

According to 37.6 of those questioned, there is an even balance between the pros and cons of membership for Slovakia, while 34.9 of the respondents think that membership is bringing more advantages than drawbacks. Only 2.7 percent of the respondents believe that Slovakia is only benefiting from EU accession, while 3.6 percent think that the move has brought only disadvantages. TASR
