If the elections for parliament had taken place in September, neither of the two ethnic-Hungarian parties – SMK and Most-Híd – would have reached the threshold to make it to parliament, according to the latest MEDIAN SK poll conducted among a representative sample of 1,142 Slovak citizens between August 31 and September 27, the TASR newswire reported.

If the elections for parliament had taken place in September, neither of the two ethnic-Hungarian parties – SMK and Most-Híd – would have reached the threshold to make it to parliament, according to the latest MEDIAN SK poll conducted among a representative sample of 1,142 Slovak citizens between August 31 and September 27, the TASR newswire reported.

The strongest political party in Slovakia remains Smer which the poll found had 42.9 percent support from the electorate. Second would have been the strongest opposition party, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union, SDKÚ with 16.3 percent, followed by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 10.8 percent, the Slovak National Party (SNS) with 9.8 percent and the Movement for Democratic Slovakia, HZDS, with 7.8 percent.

SMK, Most-Híd and the Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS) fell short of the 5 percent threshold, with SMK receiving 4.6 percent, Most-Híd 3.1 percent and SaS 2.8 percent. No other parties exceeded 1 percent.

Up to 30.3 percent of the respondents said they would not have voted and an additional 8.5 percent said it was more than likely they would not have voted and 3.9 percent said they were still undecided as to whether they would vote. Around 28.7 percent of the respondents said they would certainly have cast their ballots while another 28.6 said that they were more likely to turn out for the vote. TASR
