Opposition Smer gaining on the second most popular party in polls

Altogether eight parties would win the parliamentary seats, recent AKO poll shows.

The opposition party Smer, led by former three-time prime minister Robert Fico, continues to gain the support of voters.

Even though the party ended up third in the recent opinion poll carried out by the AKO agency for the private broadcaster TV JOJ in the first half of December, its result was not much worse than that of the second most popular party, Freedom and Solidarity (SaS).
