The governing coalition’s Smer party comes out as the voters’ top preference in next year’s national elections even though it keeps losing some support, as shown by the most recent opinion poll carried out between April 13 and May 10 by the Median SK polling agency in which 46.4 percent of those surveyed said they would vote for Smer, the SITA newswire reported.

Smer’s junior coalition partner, the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) saw its numbers fall to 7.8 percent from the 9.1 percent it had received a month before.

Of the three governing coalition parties, only the Slovak National Party (SNS) witnessed its preference rising among those surveyed, by one percent to 11.8 percent.

The opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKU) ranked second after Smer, with a significantly stronger position in this poll. While a month ago 12.6 percent of the respondents said they would vote for the party, the most recent results show 15.9 percent of the respondents favouring SDKU.

The Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) was favoured by 9.4 percent of the respondents and the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) received only 6 percent support in this poll, in contrast to its 7.2 percent a month ago.

According to the poll, 11.4 percent of the voters do not know which party they would vote for and 37.4 percent say they are sure they would not cast a ballot at all, SITA reported. SITA
