SNS and SMK in parliament, SDKÚ and SaS out

IF THE parliamentary elections took place in early December, they would be won by the ruling Smer party which would receive the support of 38.3 percent of voters. The second strongest party in the parliament would become Sieť with 11.9 percent, followed by the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) with 8.4 percent, the poll carried out by the Polis polling agency for the SITA newswire between December 1 and 7 on 1,463 respondents suggests.

Also the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) would make it to the parliament supported by 8.2 percent of respondents, followed by Most-Híd with 7.8 percent, the Slovak National Party (SNS) with 5.2 percent and the Party of Hungarian Community (SMK) with 5.1 percent.

Based on the results, Smer would have 68 MPs, Sieť 21, OĽaNO 15, KDH and Most-Híd 14 each, and SNS and SMK nine each, SITA wrote.

Current parliamentary parties Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) and the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) would fail to make it to the parliament after receiving 3.9 percent and 3.1 percent respectively. Also NOVA would remain outside of the parliamentary doors with 2.4-percent support.

The preferences were counted with a 55-percent possible turnout. 20 percent of respondents said they would not vote and 25 percent were undecided, SITA wrote.
