October 11, 2017   
Article's tools:

Poland's President Andrzej Duda managed to strengthen his political position in the wake of the recent conflict with ruling party Law and Justice (PiS), the daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna writes front page citing the results of a recent survey.
As many as 42.7% of Poles would vote for Duda in the presidential election, the survey shows. The incumbent president is followed by former PM Donald Tusk (17.1%) and Slupsk city mayor Robert Biedron (12.7%).
The survey was conducted on a representative sample of 1,045 adult Poles between September 29 and October 2.
At the same time, Duda suffered a month on month approval rating decline to 50% from 57% in October while his disapproval rating rose to 41% from 38%, the first such situation since March, daily Rzeczpospolita writes of a survey it commissioned with pollster IBRiS. PM Beata Szydlo saw her approval rating shrink to 42% from 49%, with disapproval rating unchanged at 49%, the poll shows.
Duda's ratings may have worsened due to the manner in which he presented his judiciary reform bills as well as liberal circles' disappointment with his proposals, while Szydlo is suffering due to her absence from key political disputes, IBRiS head Marcin Duma comments for the newspaper.
