Poll surveys general public about judicial reforms

Robert Fico's government will continue the reforms made in the judiciary initiated by former justice minister Lucia Žitňanská from the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) with certain modifications, said 37 percent of the respondents surveyed by the Institute for Public Affairs Institute (IVO), the TASR newswire reported. Only 9 percent said that they believe that the new government will continue Žitňanská's reforms without modification and 22 percent thought the reforms will be scrapped entirely while 8 percent had the opinion the government will do nothing. Almost one-quarter of those surveyed could not or did not answer the question, TASR wrote.

IVO also asked judges and legal experts about their opinions and they almost unanimously said that they do not believe the Žitňanská reforms would continue without major changes.

The survey found that most supporters of Smer party expect the government to continue the reforms with some changes while supporters of opposition parties think the reforms will be scrapped.
