PO and PiS to secure narrow majority in new Parliament
July 8, 2005   
Article's tools:

Poland's opposition parties, the centrist Civic Platform (PO) [editor's note: why does the Polish press keep calling this party liberal?] and the conservative Law and Justice party (PiS) would secure a narrow majority if elections were held in July according to a TNS OBOP survey.

PiS got 23% support and would have 121 MPs in the 460-seat Parliament.

PO would receive 21% of votes and would have 113 representatives in Parliament.

The Populist Self-Defense party (Samoobrona) got 18% backing, which would translate into 102 seats.

Also, the populist, right-wing League of Polish Families (8%), the currently ruling Democratic Left Alliance (8%) and the agrarian Polish Peasants Party (7%) would make into Parliament.

Poland is slated for Parliamentary elections on September 25. PO and PiS have for a long time been declaring that they want to be coalition partners after the election.

The survey was conducted July 1-4 on a representative 944 person sample.
