Poland’s ruling Law and Justice (PIS) party would garner 47 percent support if parliamentary elections were held on Saturday -- a historic high for the grouping, according to a survey by pollster CBOS.

Civic Platform (PO) came second in the survey with 16 percent. The party is followed by Kukiz’15 with 8 percent.
Nowoczesna (Modern) would get 6 percent.
Parties that would fail to pass the 5-percent threshold needed to enter Parliament include the Polish People’s Party (PSL), with 3 percent, and three other groupings, the Democratic Left Alliance, Janusz Korwin-Mikke’s Freedom and the left-wing Together parties, which would all garner 2 percent.
The survey was carried out between 2 and 12 October on a sample of 948 Poles. (aba/pk)
