IF THE parliamentary elections took place in early November, they would have been won by the ruling Smer party supported by 38.8 percent of the vote. Second would become the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) with 12.2 percent, the poll carried out by MVK polling agency between November 1 and 7 on 1,125 respondents showed.

The non-parliamentary Sieť party would get support of 11.9 percent of the vote, followed by the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) with 6.9 percent and Most-Híd with 6.2 percent, the TASR newswire reported.

Such election results would mean that Smer would have 77 MPs, KDH and Sieť 24 each, OĽaNO 13 and Most-Híd 12.

Two current parliamentary parties would fail to pass the 5-percent threshold to win seats in the parliament: the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) which would pick only 3.9 percent of the vote, and Freedom and Solidarity with 3.7 percent. Also the Party of Hungarian Community (SMK), the Slovak National Party (SNS) and NOVA would not make it to the parliament after receiving the support of 4.5 percent, 3.9 percent and 3.1 percent of respondents, respectively, TASR wrote.

The poll showed that 6.7 percent of respondents would not attend the elections and another 23 percent were undecided.
