For the first time the party would gain over six percent support, the SITA newswire wrote.

The ruling Smer party would come out as the clear top vote-getter in the elections according to this poll but with less than thirty percent of the vote (29.3 percent). Next, according to the poll, is the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) with 14.4 percent, the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 10.8 percent and the Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS) with 10.1 percent.

The Movement for Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) would be fifth with 6.3 percent. Most-Hid, a new party, would make it to the new parliament with support of six percent, the Slovak National Party (SNS) would garner 5.4 percent and the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) would collect 5.2 percent.

The current ruling coalition parties would have 66 mandates in the new parliament and the other opposition parties would have 74 and in that way SDĽ with its ten seats could decide the composition of the next government, SITA wrote.
