Most Slovaks are critical about the investigation of suspicions related to financing of the biggest coalition party, the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), and the biggest opposition party, Smer, according to a recently-conducted poll, the SITA newswire reported.
The Public Affairs Institute (IVO) polled 1,038 adult Slovaks between November 3 and November 9 about whether they were satisfied with the course of the investigation of these cases, on which the general prosecutor still has files open. Altogether, 57 percent of respondents said they were dissatisfied with the course of the investigation of SDKÚ financing, while 54 percent were not pleased with the investigation into Smer party financing. Positive evaluations were rare in both cases, only 12 percent and 13 percent, respectively. Almost one-third of respondents said they were not interested in the investigations of the cases.
