Six out of 10 Slovaks disagree with the recent change, introducing a longer moratorium on pre-election polls.

The extension of the ban to publish the poll results in the media from the current 14 days to 50 was opposed by 59.4 percent of 1,000 respondents who participated in the Focus poll, carried out between October 23 and 28.

The more detailed results suggest that 40.3 percent certainly disagree with the extended moratorium, while 19.1 percent rather disagree.

Most respondents who oppose the moratorium are the voters ex-president Andrej Kiska's Za Ľudí party (85 percent), followed by the voters of Progressive Slovakia and Spolu (84 percent), Freedom and Solidarity (83 percent), the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (74 percent), the Christian Democratic Movement (72 percent), and Most-Híd (71 percent).
