The latest poll organised by Median SK released on November 8 shows that the largest opposition party in parliament, Smer, had the support of 36.2 percent of those polled and would have been the top runner if an election had been held in late September or early October, the TASR newswire wrote.
The runner-up would have been the largest of the governing coalition parties, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) with 17.4-percent support, followed by their coalition partner, the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 10.6 percent,. Another governing party, Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), would have finished fourth with 10.3 percent, while the smallest coalition party, Most-Híd, polled 8 percent.
The Slovak National Party (SNS), currently in opposition, would have been the last party to cross the 5-percent threshold needed to enter parliament, with 6.8 percent. The Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) and the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) would have fallen short of 5 percent, polling 3.8 percent and 3.0 percent, respectively.
