PO almost level with PiS after Tusk success: poll

Poland's ruling party Civic Platform (PO) has narrowed the gap separating it from the opposition Law and Justice (PiS) party to just one percentage point, according to a survey carried out after Prime Minister Donald Tusk was chosen for a key EU job.

Tusk's PO has been trailing far behind PiS in recent months. But the new poll by Millward Brown for the TVN24 channel shows PO is now backed by 31% of voters, while PiS is supported by 32%.

Analysts say the latest poll reflects the "Tusk effect" after the prime minister was chosen by EU leaders at a summit on Saturday as the next president of the European Council -- a move hailed as a major success for Poland.

The poll for TVN24 put the leftwing Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) on 9%, the far-right New Right on 7%, and the Polish People's Party (PSL), the junior partner in the coalition government, on 5%.
