In the March 5 general election, the Smer party got 28.3 percent, the TASR newswire wrote, citing a poll by the Focus agency.

The poll, which was carried out by the Focus agency on a sample of 1,020 respondents, indicated that the Slovak National Party (SNS) would have come second with 12.8 percent (22 seats), followed by the opposition Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 12.1 percent (20 seats).

Five more parties would have made it into parliament – the far-right Kotleba-People’s Party Our Slovakia-ĽSNS (8.4 percent/14 seats), Ordinary People and Independent Personalities-NOVA (OĽaNO-NOVA, 8 percent/13 seats), Sme rodina-Boris Kollár (7.5 percent/13 seats), Most-Híd (6.7 percent/11 seats), and the Christian Democratic Movement/KDH (6.3 percent/11 seats).

The following parties would have failed to reach the 5-percent threshold of votes required to win seats in the House: the Hungarian Community Party/SMK (3.9 percent), Sieť (Network; 1.6 percent), the Slovak Green Party-SZS (1.4 percent), the Slovak Communist Party-KSS (1.5 percent). Other parties would garner less than one percent: Direct Democracy, SDKÚ-DS, Šanca, the Party of Modern Slovakia-SMS, the Slovak Democrats-DS, Vzdor (Resistance), and SKOK. Around 0.3 percent of the respondents would have cast their votes for an entirely different party, TASR quoted the poll.

Around 19.6 percent of the respondents would not have voted, while 9.2 percent would not have known whom to vote for.
