Opinion poll: Smer enjoys highest support

Two years after the last parliamentary elections, Smer, the main governing coalition party led by Prime Minister Robert Fico, continues to enjoy the support of more Slovak citizens that any other. According to a public opinion poll carried out by the MVK agency among 1,083 respondents at the end of May and beginning of June, 38.5 percent of respondents said they would vote for Smer. Second most popular was the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), with 12.3 percent; one of the junior coalition parties, the Slovak National Party (SNS) came in third, attracting 11.5 percent support.

Respondents were asked the question which party they would support if
parliamentary elections were held the following weekend. Over nine percent of respondents said they would not vote and 19.3 percent were undecided.

According to the MVK poll, the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) would also cross the 5 percent threshold to win parliamentary seats, with the support of 9.2 percent of voters; the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) would receive 8.4-percent support and the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) 8 percent.

If these results were reflected in an election, Smer would get 66 MPS, the SDKU 21, the SMS 19, the KDH 16, the SMK and the HZDS 14 each. SITA
