Poll: Presidential run-off in Slovakia would be close

Written by on February 13, 2014 in Europe - No comments

One of the last polls to be published before the March 15 2014 presidential race in Slovakia has confirmed a frequently voiced theory.

If Prime Minister Robert Fico fails to take 50 per cent of the vote in the first round, his challenger stands a chance of winning in the second round.

The recent poll by the Focus polling agency singled out businessman and philanthropist Andrej Kiska as having a chance to beat Fico in the second round. Nevertheless, the pollster was quick to add that people who preferred Kiska in the polls belong to a group that is rather difficult to read.

Meanwhile, Kiska has accused Fico of waging an anti-campaign against him, with Fico’s team responding that the prime minister is actually the most frequent target of campaign attacks.
