Pavol Hrušovský, the former chair of the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) would have received 8.6 percent, environmental activist Mikuláš Huba 5.8 percent, František Šebej 4.7 percent and Peter Osuský 2.6 percent.

Pavol Haulík of MVK told the SITA newswire that his agency used a pre-defined and closed list of candidates arranged alphabetically who were selected based on an analysis of personal preferences of relevant voter segments.

The pollster added that 38.6 percent of respondents refused to take part in the simulated election or were unable to select among the offered candidates. The remaining 61.4 percent of respondents chose their favourite from the listed candidates.
