About article:

The aim of this article is to describe the basic trends in regional support for the main political parties in Slovakia since 2002. The period under study incorporates three Slovak parliamentary elections of 2002, 2006 and 2010. An issue of the core and peripheral areas of electoral support for the political parties studied from the view of individual regions is emphasized. The territorial units used in this research are represented by functional urban regions best reflecting social interactions existing on the regional level. The research method evaluating the relevance of individual regions for political parties’ election outcomes divides them into two main categories according to their political importance. Slovak regions are very distinct in both, the number and importance of the areas of electoral support and also in the rate of loyalty over time to the particular political parties. The territorial concentration of voter preferences is clearly a factor determining the number and character of core and peripheral areas of the electoral support.
