MVK Poll: Seven Parties in Parliament, SaS Outside

Bratislava, February 4 (TASR) – The latest public opinion poll carried out by MVK polling agency at the end of January shows that seven parties would have made it into parliament.

A general election in Slovakia would have been won by the currently governing Smer-SD with 32.1 percent, which would have brought it 58 seats. Siet (Network) would have been the second strongest political party backed by 14.6 percent of voters, meaning 27 seats in the House.

The Slovak National Party (SNS) with 10.1-percent backing would have occupied 18 seats. The Christian Democrats (KDH) would have been supported by 8.2 percent of respondents, providing 15 seats to the party. Most-Hid (6 percent) and OLaNO-NOVA (5.9 percent) would have had 11 lawmakers in parliament, while the Hungarian Community Party (SMK) with 5.1-percent backing would have had ten MPs.

We are Family-Boris Kollar (4.0 percent), the liberal Freedom and Solidarity (SaS – 3.4 percent), SKOK (2.5 percent), Kotleba -People’s Party Our Slovakia (2.1 percent), SDKU-DS (1.6 percent) and the Commmunist Party of Slovakia (KSS – 1.1 percent) would have failed to reach the 5-percent threshold needed to get into parliament.

The poll was carried out between January 22-28 on a sample of 1,148 respondents who chose from the 23 political parties fighting for votes in the March general election.

The poll further showed that 46.6 percent of the respondents were ready to cast their votes, while 8.9 percent said that they definitely wouldn’t have gone to the polling stations and 13.2 percent didn’t yet know whether to vote or for whom.
