If the Bratislava mayoral race took place on October 22, Milan Kňažko (independent, supported by Christian-Democratic Movement-KDH), would win with 34.4 percent.

Second would be, with a close margin, current Mayor Milan Ftáčnik (supported by the ruling Smer party) with 33 percent, and Ivo Nesrovnal (independent) at 17.6 percent, according to a poll conducted by the MVK agency between October 9 and 14.

Other candidates for the position of Bratislava mayor would end up as follows:
Tatiana Kratochvílová (Sieť/Network, supported by Slovak democratic and Christian Union-SDKÚ, Most-Híd and Freedom and Solidarity-SaS) with 7.6 percent of votes; followed by Miroslav Dragun (3.5 percent), Gabriel Karácsony (1.3 percent), and Peter Čiernik (1 percent). Andrej Palacko, (0.7 percent) Ivan Bielik (0.6 percent) and Kristína Ulmanová (0.3 percent) would not reach 1 percent, the SITA newswire quoted from the poll.

MVK asked, in the poll made for the Bratislavský kuriér local newspaper, also what the turnout would be. A total of 33.3 percent of respondents said they will vote in mid November; 39.5 percent more said they are considering their participation.
