The poll asked respondents which party they would support if a parliamentary election was held on the weekend of September 10-11.

Opposition SNS party would not reach parliament while a new party that might be formed by independent MP Igor Matovič would receive the support of two percent of the respondents, SITA wrote. Smer would remain the dominant party, with 36.1 percent, and winning seventy seats in the 150-member parliament.

The parties making up the governing coalition would get eighty seats. The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) would have gotten 13.2 percent support and 26 MPs; the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) would win 19 mandates with 9.9-percent support; Most-Híd would have 18 deputies in the parliament, based on 9.7 percent of the votes; and the Freedom and Solidarity party (SaS) would win the support of 8.7 percent of the electorate, meaning 17 deputy seats.

The Slovak National Party (SNS) headed by Ján Slota would collect 4.2 percent, the Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) 3.9 percent, and Movement for Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) of Vladimír Mečiar, 3.2 percent.
