Poll: Smer would win election, ahead of OĽaNO and KDH

If a general election had taken place in March, the ruling Smer would have won with 44.4 percent, followed by the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) and the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 9.4 percent each, according to a Median SK poll published on April 29. The Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (DKÚ) came fourth at 8.7 percent, followed by Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) - 7.1 percent and Most-Hid - 5.8 percent. No other parties would pass the 5 percent threshold to reach parliament, the TASR newswire wrote. The Slovak National Party (SNS) and Party of the Hungarian Community (SMK), both out of parliament at the moment, would have remained outside, gaining only 4.5 percent and 3.6 percent of votes, respectively. All other parties combined to have just 4.5 percent.
