However, it would need a coalition partner, according to a public opinion poll made by the Focus agency for the public television and radio, RTVS on 1,000 respondents between January 31 and February 7.

Six more parties would make it to the parliament: Sieť with 13.7 percent would get 25 chairs; Slovak National Party (SNS) with 8.1 percent would get 15 mandates; Most-Híd on 8 percent would garner 14 mandates; and Christian-Democratic Movement (KDH) with 7.5 percent would have 13 chairs, and Ordinary People and Independent Personalities-NOVA (OĽaNO-NOVA) would win 6.4 percent of votes and 12 chairs. The last party to achieve the necessary threshold of five percent would be Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 5.1 percent and with 9 chairs.

The parties that would not make it into the parliament would be Sme rodina – Boris Kollár (4.1 percent), ethnic Hungarian SMK (3.6 percent), Kotleba – People’s Party our Slovakia (2 percent), Slovak Democratic and Christian Union-SDKÚ (1.7 percent), SKOK (1.2 percent), Šanca (1.2 percent), communist party KSS (0.9 percent), TIP (0.8 percent), the Green party of Slovakia-SZS (0.7 percent), Direct Democracy-Priama demokracia (0.3 percent), DS – Ľudo Kaník; Together for Slovakia Coalition-Koalícia spoločne za Slovensko, MKDA, Courage – Great National and Pro-Russian Coalition,  SMS and Resistance-Vzdor (0.1 percent each).

It was also established that 75.3 percent of those polled would go to the ballot boxes, 13 percent would not go, and 11.7 percent did not know, the TASR newswire quoted the Focus poll.
