If parliamentary elections in Poland were held this coming weekend, the ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party would win 39.4 percent of the vote, far more than its closest rival, a poll has found.

However, support for Law and Justice is three percentage points less than in a similar poll a month ago, pollster IBRiS said.
Meanwhile, the Civic Platform (PO), the country’s largest opposition grouping, improved its ratings by 2.5 percentage points and can now count on 22.5 percent support, according to the poll, which was commissioned by the Rzeczpospolita daily.
The Democratic Left Alliance, which has no parliamentary representation in Poland’s current parliament, has emerged as the number three player, with 9.7 percent, IBRiS said.
Three other parties would also exceed the 5-percent threshold required for entering parliament, the poll found.
