Poll indicates that support for Most-Híd party has fallen

According to a party preference poll carried out by the MEDIAN SK agency, Most-Híd party would have had the support of only 4.3 percent of those polled and would not have made it to parliament if an election had been held at the turn of August and September, the TASR newswire wrote. According to the MEDIAN poll, Smer remains the most popular party with 40-percent support, with Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) second at 17.9 percent. The 5-percent threshold required to get into the Parliament would have been crossed also by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 11.5 percent, Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 10.5 percent and the Slovak National Party (SNS) with 7.6 percent.
