If the parliamentary elections had taken place in March, five political parties would make it to parliament, the TASR newswire reported. The poll of elections preferences completed by the MEDIAN SK agency between March 1 and 28 showed that neither the Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS) at 4.3 percent, the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) at 3.9 percent, nor Most-Híd party at 2.3 percent would make it over the 5 percent threshold.

The strongest party in Slovakia remains the ruling Smer party with 44 percent support, followed by the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) and Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) – both at 13.1 percent; and the Slovak National Party (SNS) with 7 percent; and the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) with 6.1 percent support, TASR was told by MEDIAN SK on April 20.

Of those polled, 24.8 percent said they would not go to the election, while 9.4 percent said would rather not vote, and 3.3 percent have not decided whether to cast their vote. In total here were 1,495 respondents in the opinion poll, aged 18 to 79.
