Current Prime Minister Robert Fico and independent civic candidate Andrej Kiska would make it to the second round run-off in a presidential election, a public opinion poll by the Focus agency, published on July 25 suggests.

The poll, conducted between July 3 and 10, asked 1,055 respondents to whom they would give their vote if an election were to take place the following weekend. 59 percent expressed a preference, 23.1 percent do not know and 17.9 percent said they would not vote, the SITA newswire reported, citing the poll results.

The most votes went to Fico (36.3 percent), followed by Kiska (18.9), Pavol Hrušovský (Christian Democratic Movement (KDH), 13.4 percent), Peter Šťastný (Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), 9 percent), Martin Bútora (independent sociologist, 6 percent), independent MP Radoslav Procházka (5.8 percent), and former prime minister and independent candidate Ján Čarnogurský (5.2 percent). Other candidates Viliam Fischer (independent, 4.3) and Peter Osuský (Freedom and Solidarity (SaS), 1.1 percent) would attract less than five percent, Martin Slosiarik of the Focus agency told SITA. Fico has not said if he will run in the presidential election, which is due to take place next year.
