The Smer party has maintained its position as the largest party in the Slovak Parliament following elections held on June 12. Votes have been counted in 41.45 percent of election precincts.

According to the Statistics Office of the Slovak Republic, which has been publishing preliminary results as returns from each precinct arrive, Smer leads with 36.94 percent, followed by the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) on 14.88 percent. Third is Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 12.07 percent, followed by Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), which has so far received 8.94 percent.

Other parties on course to pass the five percent threshold and thus enter parliament, based on the official preliminary results, are: Most-Híd (6.42 percent), Slovak National Party (5.23 percent).

However, preliminary results with 41.45 percent of the votes counted suggest that Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), on just 4.53 percent, will not make it into parliament.
