This stems from an exclusive poll carried out by Median SK for the public-service broadcaster RTVS, between March 17 and 19, on 1,014 respondents.

Who supports the candidates?

Čaputová is mostly supported by younger voters aged 18-30 years and respondents with a university education. People aged 65 and higher and voters with a secondary school-leaving exam would support Šefčovič, the poll suggests.

It also showed that only 44 percent of respondents would actually cast a ballot. Mostly young voters aged 18-24 years and voters older than 65 years of age said that they would certainly participate in the elections.

About one-fifth of respondents said they would consider participating.
