Had a general election taken place in January, it would have been won by the extra-parliamentary Voice-SD party on 18 percent of the votes. This information was provided by a poll carried out by the AKO agency for the private TV Joj which revealed it on Friday. Voice-SD would have been followed by the governing Freedom and Solidarity (SaS) party on 14.2 percent and the opposition Smer-SD party on 13.8 percent.
Other parties that would have made it into Parliament were OLaNO on 9.3 percent, Progressive Slovakia (PS) on 8.5 percent, We Are Family on 6.5 percent, the far-right Republic party on 6.2 percent and the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) on 6 percent.
Two parties that currently hold seats in Parliament would not have reached the necessary 5-percent threshold this time, namely People’s Party Our Slovakia (LSNS) on 2.9 percent, and For the People on 2.2 percent. Also left outside Parliament would have been the ethnic-Hungarian Alliance party on 4 percent and the former governing Slovak National Party (SNS) on 3.6 percent.
The AKO agency carried out the phone survey on a sample of 1,000 respondents between January 10 and 17.
