According to the latest public opinion poll carried out by the Focus agency, the current parliamentary opposition would get enough voter support to be able to form a coalition, as main opposition party Smer-SD of former PM Robert Fico still enjoys 43.2% backing from voters.
If Smer-SD were to join forces with nationalist party SNS of Jan Slota, they would have an 82 seat majority in the 150-member parliament. The figures would mean the current coalition would not get into power if the elections were held just now.
Apathy still reigns, with as many as 19.3% of those questioned saying they would not vote for anyone, with another 12.9% failing to give a specific answer.
The poll was done on just 1,022 respondents and the differences in rankings did not change so much, but maybe just enough to swing power.
