If a parliamentary election took place in early January, the far-right Kotlebovci – People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) would receive greater support than the parties defining themselves as the democratic opposition.

It would place second, winning 11.7 percent of the vote. This stems from a poll carried out by the AKO agency for the private news channel TA3 between January 7 and 9 on 1,000 respondents.

The only party surpassing the ĽSNS would be Smer, which would win the election with 17.7-percent support.

Third would be the Za Ľudí party of ex-president Andrej Kiska, which would receive 10.4 percent of the vote. The coalition of Progressive Slovakia (PS) and Spolu would come next with 9.1 percent, followed by the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) with 8.3 percent, Sme Rodina with 7.6 percent, and Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) with 6.8 percent.
