However, another ruling coalition party, the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), would not make it into parliament, as only 4 percent of those polled said they would cast ballots for it.

These findings come from a survey carried out by the Polis agency from June 13 to June 23 on a representative sample of 1,777 Slovak citizens, the SITA newswire reported.

Smer was followed by the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), with 17.5 percent and the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with nearly 11 percent. The Slovak National Party (SNS) polled 6 percent support among respondents, as did the opposition Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) .

All the other political parties currently active in Slovakia were favoured by fewer than 3 percent of those polled by Polis.
