IF PARLIAMENTARY elections had been held in January, the ruling coalition would have finished without a majority in parliament, despite the fact that the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) improved its preferences to 16.9 percent, according to a survey conducted between January 3 and 31 by the Median SK polling agency.
The opposition Smer party attracted support from 39.7 percent while the Slovak National Party (SNS), also in opposition, would have crossed the five-percent threshold to get into parliament, with 5.7 percent.
The Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) was supported by 11.6 percent of respondents, while Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) got 8.4 percent of the preferences and Most-Híd 7.1 percent.
No other political party would have made it into parliament based on the poll results.
