Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party is backed by a massive 47 percent of voters who say they would take part in parliamentary elections, according to a new survey by Instytut Badań Pollster.

Meanwhile, the opposition Civic Platform (PO) party, which was voted out of power in 2015 parliamentary elections, is in second place, with 17 percent, according to the survey, which was commissioned by the tabloid Super Express and its se.pl online service.
The anti-establishment Kukiz’15 group is third on 10 percent, and the Nowoczesna (Modern) party is fourth on 9 percent.
The Democratic Left Alliance (SLD), which is outside parliament, and the rural-based Polish People's Party (PSL) would also make it into the Sejm, the lower house of parliament, each on 5 percent, the poll found.
The study was conducted after Nowoczesna chose a new leader on Saturday, the se.pl website said. It did not give the exact date or say how many respondents were surveyed.
Another survey by the same pollster released earlier this week had the ruling PiS party way ahead of the opposition, with support at 43 percent.
