Bratislava, December 12 (TASR) – Had a presidential election taken place in December, the highest number of people would have voted for scientist Robert Mistrik, who would have received 16.8 percent, TASR learnt from AKO agency, which carried out the poll on a sample of 1,000 respondents between December 6-10.

The poll was ordered by one of the official presidential candidates Zuzana Caputova of Progressive Slovakia. Only candidates who have expressed their intention to run in the 2019 presidential election were included in the poll.

Second in the poll came coalition Most-Hid party leader Bela Bugar (16.2 percent) followed by Supreme Court judge Stefan Harabin (12.8 percent).

Next came We Are Family MP Milan Krajniak (12.3 percent), followed by Caputova (10.9 percent), former KDH member Frantisek Miklosko (9.5 percent), far-right LSNS leader Marian Kotleba (7 percent) and political analyst Eduard Chmelar (6.2 percent). Other people included in the poll would have gained less than 5 percent.

The presidential election will be held in the spring of next year. Not all of the candidates are known yet.
