New Majority-Liberal Agreement (NOVA-LIDO) head Daniel Lipšic or Most-Híd party chairman Béla Bugár are best placed to lead the opposition, a survey carried out by the MVK polling agency suggests.

A total of 1,085 people included in the poll were asked which politician should be the opposition's leader, with each respondent allowed to cite any two names. Lipšic and Bugár both received the support of 14 percent of respondents. Next came Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) leader Igor Matovič on 6.5 percent, followed by the head of the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) parliamentary caucus Pavol Hrušovský (5 percent) and Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) leader Pavol Frešo (4.8 percent).

A similar result emerged when only opposition party sympathisers were polled. Lipšic and Bugár came first and second, on 22 and 19 percent respectively, while Hrušovský (7.6 percent) was deemed to be the third most suitable opposition leader. Matovič and Frešo followed on 7.3 percent and 6.5 percent respectively.
