Sociologist says voters quickly forgive mistakes made by political parties they support

Voters in Slovakia are not very sensitive to mistakes made by parties that they support and they generously excuse them, sociologist Pavel Haulík told the TASR newswire on March 10. Haulík was speaking in response to current developments in the infamous bulletin-board tender and the involvement of the Slovak National Party (SNS) in it. The social scientist said the new wave of media attention focused on case linked to the SNS will not cause too much harm to SNS in terms of its voter support.

Voters in Slovakia are not very sensitive to mistakes made by parties that they support and they generously excuse them, sociologist Pavel Haulík told the TASR newswire on March 10.

Haulík was speaking in response to current developments in the infamous bulletin-board tender and the involvement of the Slovak National Party (SNS) in it. The social scientist said the new wave of media attention focused on case linked to the SNS will not cause too much harm to SNS in terms of its voter support.

Haulík also said this is an inexact science. "Even if SNS's voter support is continuing to fall at the moment, it's hard to say that this is what caused it," he said.

Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic (KDH) announced at a press conference on March 9 that MP Igor Štefanov from SNS will face a parliamentary motion aimed at depriving him of his parliamentary immunity for his involvement in the bulletin-board tender that took place at the Construction Ministry when it came under the remit of SNS.
