Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party is backed by 45% of voters, according to a new survey.
Support for the party, which came to power after winning parliamentary elections in late 2015, has fallen 2 percentage points from October, pollster CBOS found.
The opposition Civic Platform (PO) party is way behind, on 17%, according to the survey. Support for the PO has inched up 1 percentage point from October.
The anti-establishment Kukiz’15 grouping is third on 8%, the same as last month, and the Nowoczesna (Modern) party is fourth on 5%, according to CBOS.
The poll found no other parties would clear the 5 percent support threshold needed to enter parliament.
The survey was conducted November 2-12 on a representative sample of 1,016 adult respondents who were asked whom they would back if parliamentary elections were held in the first half of this month.
