Just over a quarter of respondents in the latest public opinion poll conducted by Mediana for the commercial broadcaster POP TV support the work of the Janez Janša government, which is the lowest support in this term. The largest party in the ruling coalition, the Democrats (SDS), continues to lead the party rankings, followed by the opposition Social Democrats (SD).
While 27.5% of respondents support the cabinet, two-thirds or 63.9% oppose it and 8.6% are undecided, according to a survey of 714 respondents this month.
Although it remains the most popular party, the SDS lost some voters, as its support fell by almost two percentage points to 16.1%. SD in second place also lost ground, going from 11.7% to 11.1%.
Meanwhile, support for the opposition left rose 0.8 percentage points to 8.8%.
The Marjan Šarec List (LMŠ) continues to lose the trust of voters, going from 7.9% to 5.6%.
In contrast, the New Slovenia (NSi) coalition saw its support from 4.2% to 5.6%.
The top five are followed by the Alenka Bratušek Party (SAB), whose support rose by 1.4 percentage points to 4.1%, the Pirates by 2.5% and the Greens by 2%.
All other parties enjoy the support of less than 1% of respondents.
One in four respondents is undecided (23.3%), and one in ten would not vote for any of the existing parties. Almost 3% of respondents would not disclose their party preferences.
MEP Ljudmila Novak (EPP / NSi) climbed to the top of the list of most well-known politicians from third place last month. It is followed by last month’s favorite, President Borut Pahor, and Parliament Speaker Igor Zorčič. Prime Minister Janez Janša ranked 15th, while Education Minister Simona Kustec is at the bottom of the list.
