Every vote that voters cast for the winner of the parliamentary election, the Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO), cost the movement about €3.
This "price" is based on calculations considering the number of gained votes and the cost of the campaign by the non-governmental Transparency International Slovakia. TIS estimated the OĽaNO campaign to have cost €2.1 million, while the movement gained 721,166 votes.
The far right People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) and Sme Rodina ended with a similar cost. ĽSNS spent €650,000 and received 229,660 votes. Sme Rodina, which is expected to join OĽaNO in a future ruling coalition as the second strongest partner, spent €800,000 and received 237,531 votes.
