Poll: SaS out of parliament again

The third consecutive opinion poll has shown that the liberal Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party would fail to clear the 5-percent threshold necessary for parties to win seats in parliament. The latest poll, carried out by the Polis agency, showed that if parliamentary elections had been held at the end of May, the liberal party would have garnered only 3.4 percent of the vote. In the Focus poll, the party received 3.9 percent, while a poll by the MVK agency showed SaS with support of only 2.6 percent of the respondents.
