Vote 2010: Smer comes first on 34.8 percent, but may lack coalition partners

The final unofficial results of the parliamentary elections published by Slovakia’s Statistics Office after all the valid votes were counted show that Smer was the most popular party, with 34.8 percent of the vote. However, the overall election result has given hope to the centre-right parties that they, and not Robert Fico’s Smer, will be able to form the next government.

The final unofficial results of the parliamentary elections published by Slovakia’s Statistics Office after all the valid votes were counted show that Smer was the most popular party, with 34.8 percent of the vote. However, the overall election result has given hope to the centre-right parties that they, and not Robert Fico’s Smer, will be able to form the next government.

Fico’s party will not be able to rely on the support of Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS), whose support fell below 5 percent, meaning it will not be represented in the new parliament.

The unofficial results of the election, following a count of all valid votes, are as follows:

Smer – 34.8 percent (62 seats)
Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) – 15.4 percent (26 seats)
Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) – 12.14 percent (22 seats)
Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) – 8.52 percent (15 seats)
Most-Híd – 8.12 percent (14 seats)
Slovak National Party (SNS) – 5.07 percent (9 seats)
Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) – 4.33 percent
Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) – 4.32 percent

Smer and SNS would get 71 seats while an eventual coalition of SDKÚ, KDH, SaS and Most-Híd would have 79 seats in parliament.

The election turnout was 58.83 percent. Four years ago, the election turnout stood at 55 percent.
