“Conversely, 22 percent of those surveyed said that EU membership has not been beneficial to Slovakia, which is rise of 4 percentage points compared to the previous period,“ said Pavol Pružinec from the European Parliament Information Centre.

“Nonetheless, confidence of Slovaks vis-a-vis the EU and the European Parliament (EP) is still among the highest in the community,” Pružinec stated, as quoted by TASR.
