The Christian Democratic Coalition (KDH) would have placed fourth with 8.3 percent, ahead of the Slovak National Party (SNS) with 6.1 percent, the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) with 5.9 percent, and Most-Híd with 5.6 percent. Vladimír Mečiar's Movement for Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) with 5.1 percent would have just cleared the 5-percent threshold needed to get into Parliament.
