A new survey shows the Smer party of Prime Minister Robert Fico gained popularity in early July, the SITA newswire wrote.

The poll put support for the strongest coalition party at 48.5 percent, which is a month-on-month improvement of almost 1.8 percentage points. But the opposition SDKÚ of Mikuláš Dzurinda recorded its highest drop, to 9.7 percent, which is 3.6 points less than in June.

Of those polled, 16.2 percent said they would not vote and 13.7 percent were undecided.

The two remaining parties in the governing coalition, the SNS and the HZDS, achieved gains of 11.4 percent and 9.6 percent respectively. The opposition Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) was supported by 8.4 percent. The support for the KDH posted a slight increase for the fourth month in the row to 8.2 percent. With this score, the KDH would be the last political party to cross the 5-percent threshold for entry into parliament. SITA
