The largest opposition parties Civic Platform (PO) and Law and Justice (PiS) jointly lead a latest PGB poll with 23% support each.

Support for PO increased by 4 percentage points versus the 19% it had in June, while PiS increased its popularity by 1 pp.

Two populist parties secured spots three and four- the right-wing League of Polish Families (LPR) had 15% backing and the leftist Self- Defense (Samoobrona) had 12%.

The left-wing coalition of Poland's Social Democrats (SdPL), Labour Union (UP) and a small Green party secured 9% support, only one percentage point above the 8% threshold of acceptance into the parliament for coalitions.

The agrarian PSL and currently ruling Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) won 6% support each.

Other parties recorded results below the 5% threshold granting parlaimentary seats.

The poll was performed on June 24-27, on a representative sample of 1,027 adult Poles.
