The 50-day moratorium on opinion polls ahead of elections will not apply to the upcoming 2020 parliamentary election.
The Constitutional Court's decision from December 18 thus means that media will be able to continue publishing opinion poll results up to 14 days before election day. Parliamentary elections take place in Slovakia on February 29, 2020.
The parliament passed changes to the law on the election campaign amid much criticism at the end of November. President Zuzana Čaputová, who criticised the law, vetoed it but MPs overrode her veto. She turned to the Court thereafter.
