Poll Suggests Huge Victory of Opposition in Eurovote


The Social Democrats (SD), headed by party president Igor Lukšič, would garner 10.8% of the votes, according to the poll that included 812 people. Only 481 respondents said they would cast a vote in the election.

If the head of non-parliamentary National Party (SNS), Zmago Jelinčič, decided to run, the SNS slate would get a surprising 9.7%.

MEP Jelko Kacin, who has decided to vie for third term in the European Parliament with the support of non-parliamentary Liberal Democrats (LDS) would get 5.3% according to the poll.

The slate topped by Citizens' List head Gregor Virant and the slate of the Pensioners' Party (DeSUS) headed by MEP Ivo Vajgl would get 3.8% each, the survey suggests.

Moreover, the slate of the newly formed Solidarity party would get 3.4%, followed by the United Left, an alliance of three parties, with 3.1%.

Lagging behind everybody would be the slate of the ruling Positive Slovenia (PS) topped by MP Melita Župevc with 2%.

The survey moreover suggests that the European People's Party (EPP) could get four or five of Slovenia's eight seats, while the Alliance of the Liberals and Democrats (ALDE) and the Socialists and Democrats (S&D) could get one each.

The poll was conducted on 12, 13, 18 and 19 March.
