Smer will have the strongest position in the Prešov regional council (35 seats out of 62 in total) and in Trenčín Region (25/45). Meanwhile, in Banská Bystrica Region, where Smer ran in an alliance with the KDH, the coalition received 25 out of 49 seats, and the same coalition will also dominate the Nitra regional council (32/54).
