As for the parliamentary mandates, Smer would take 35 seats, SaS 23, Sme Rodina 17, OĽaNO 16, ĽSNS 15, SNS 13, a coalition of Spolu and PS 11, and Most-Híd and the KDH, 10 seats each.

The poll suggests that 9 percent of the respondents would certainly not go to the election, 16.7 percent did not know who to vote for and 0.7 refused to reveal who they would support.
