If the general election had taken place in early February, the far-right Kotlebovci – People’s Party Our Slovakia (ĽSNS) would not make it to parliament.
Following the recent split and the departure of several well-known faces, the party led by Marian Kotleba, who is awaiting a prison sentence for handing over controversial cheques featuring Nazi symbolism, would be supported by only 3.8 percent of voters.
This stems from a poll carried out by the AKO agency between February 8 and 11 on 1,000 respondents.
In the previous polls, the party oscillated between 5 and 9 percent. In the AKO poll from December 2020, it was supported by 5.4 percent of respondents.
