PR dla Zagranicy
Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party is backed by 44 percent of voters, while opposition groupings trail a long way behind, according to a new poll.
The survey by pollster CBOS found the opposition Civic Platform (PO) party, which headed the previous government, is supported by 19 percent.
The Kukiz'15 grouping is third on 7 percent, and the rural-based Polish People’s Party (PSL) is fourth on 5 percent.
Other parties would not exceed the 5 percent threshold needed to make it into the Polish parliament, according to the poll.
The figures are for voters who say they would take part in the next parliamentary elections.
The survey was conducted between August 16 and 23 on a sample of 1,115 adult respondents.
