Slovakia could soon have one of the longest bans on publishing pre-election polls.
MPs of the ruling Smer and Slovak National Party (SNS), aided with votes from the caucus of the fascist People's Party - Our Slovakia (ĽSNS), passed an amendment that prolongs the moratorium on publishing pre-election polls from the current 14 to 50 days.
If President Zuzana Čaputová signs the bill into law, the changes should also apply in the upcoming 2020 elections (expected to take place on February 29).
Most opposition parties believe the law to be unconstitutional, the TASR newswire reported. They called on the president to veto the law.
