PR dla Zagranicy
Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party is backed by 35 percent of voters who say they would take part in parliamentary elections, according to a new survey by Kantar Public.
Support for PiS went down by 3 percentage points compared with a previous poll, according to the pollster’s May survey.
In second place, with 21 percent -- up 2 percentage points from the previous poll in April -- is the opposition Civic Platform (PO) party, which was ousted from power in 2015 parliamentary elections.
The anti-establishment Kukiz’15 group is third on 10 percent, down from 11 percent, the poll found.
The economically liberal Nowoczesna (Modern) party is fourth, backed by 6 percent, up from 5 percent in the previous poll.
The poll found no other parties would make it into the Sejm, the lower house of parliament.
Kantar Public conducted the poll on 12-17 May on a random, nationwide sample of 1,009 adult respondents. (str/pk)
