Poll: Smer would win elections, SaS would be out of parliament

IF PARLIAMENTARY elections had been held at the turn of January and February, they would have been won by the ruling Smer party, backed by 42 percent of the vote. Current opposition party Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) would not make it into parliament, as it would fail to pass the 5-percent threshold, according to the poll carried out by Polis between January 24 and February 2 on 1,969 respondents.
