Focus poll shows SaS outside parliament

If parliamentary elections had been held in the middle of May, Smer would have won with 40.8 percent of votes, according to the poll carried out by the Focus agency on a sample of 1,018 respondents between May 9 and 13. The poll shows that the Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party, which currently occupies six seats in parliament, would not gain enough votes to make it into parliament, the SITA newswire reported on May 27.

The second highest number of votes would go to the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with the support of 10.8 percent of respondents, the poll shows, with Ordinary People and Ordinary Personalities placing third, with 7.8 percent. The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) would receive 7.3 percent of the vote, followed by Most-Híd with 6.1 percent and New Majority (NOVA) with 5.1 percent.

SaS would win the support of only 3.9 percent of the vote, which is even less than the non-parliamentary Party of the Hungarian Community (SMK) and the Slovak National Party (SNS), which would both receive 4.5 percent, SITA wrote.
