Polls disagree on SDKÚ’s level of support

The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) regained some of its lost support and returned to the position of the second most popular party in Slovakia, according to a poll carried out by the Polis agency on behalf of the TA3 news channel among a sample of 1,107 respondents, the TASR newswire reported. If an election had taken place in the beginning of July, the SDKÚ would have received the support of 7.8 percent of those polled or 14 seats in parliament.

If an election had taken place in the beginning of July, the SDKÚ would have received the support of 7.8 percent of those polled or 14 seats in parliament.

But a poll carried out by the MVK polling agency at the end of June on a sample of 1,124 respondents showed that SDKÚ would receive the support of only 5 percent of those polled, sending it to the last position among the parties that would have made it to parliament, the SITA newswire wrote on July 9.

The Polis poll showed that the most popular party is Smer, with the support of 48.8 percent of the respondents, leading to 87 seats in the 150-member parliament.

The Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) party would place third with the support of 7.6 percent, followed by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 7.4 percent, Most-Híd with 6.5 percent and Freedom and Solidarity with 5.8 percent.

OĽaNO and KDH would receive 13 seats in the parliament while Most-Híd would have 12 seats and SaS 10 seats, TASR wrote.

The MVK poll showed support for Smer at 42.7 percent or 81 seats in parliament.
