The opposition Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) contributed to the fight against corruption the most from among all the parliamentary parties, according to an evaluation conducted by the NGO Transparency International Slovensko (TIS), the TASR newswire reported.

KDH is followed by two other opposition parties, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) and the Party of Hungarian Coalition (SMK). Parties of the ruling coalition close the ranking, with the Slovak National Party (SNS) coming before Smer and the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), TASR wrote.

The ranking is based on the votes of MPs, by party affiliation, for or against pieces of legislation that touched upon the fight against corruption – there were 25 of them, according to TIS, and eight were never passed.
