August 27, 2013
Current Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz
A Monday poll suggests that the October 13 referendum concerning Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz will likely be attended by the required number of people and that the result will be the mayor's dismissal.
Intentions to vote were expressed by 36% of Warsaw residents, about 90,000 more than required for the results of the referendum to be valid. Of the remaining respondents, 42% said they would not vote in the referendum and 22% said they were not yet decided.
Amongst those who declared their intentions to vote in the referendum, 65% said they would vote to oust the mayor and only 16% said they would vote in her favor.
The poll was conducted by the TNS Polska public opinion researcher for public broadcaster TVP1's “Wiadomosci."
