This would result in acquiring 68 seats in parliament, the recent opinion poll carried out by Focus agency between September 1 and 9 on 1,003 respondents suggests.

Apart from Smer, six other political parties would have made it into parliament. In second place would be Sieť with 11.4 percent (20 seats), followed by the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) which would have gained 8.2 percent (14 seats), the TASR newswire reported.

The Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) and NOVA coalition would have obtained 8 percent of votes (14 seats), Most-Híd 7.1 percent (13 seats), the Slovak National Party (SNS) 6.4 percent (11 seats), and Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) 5.4 percent (10 seats).

Stuck outside the parliament would have been the Party of Hungarian Community (SMK) with 4.1 percent. No other party would have won over more than 3 percent of voters, not even the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ), which won several seats last time around, TASR wrote.

The poll also showed that 68.5 percent would have participated in an election and that 19.1 percent would not have done so. The remaining 12.4 percent either did not know or did not want to respond.
