PiS lead in polls nudges higher

If elections were held last weekend, 36 percent would vote for the opposition Law and Justice (PiS) and 29 percent for ruling Civic Platform (PO).

According to the latest opinion poll by CBOS, political newcomer Paweł Kukiz would get 11 percent and no other parties would breach the five percent necessary to have parliamentary representation.

PiS is up five percentage points on the previous month and PO up four percent. Kukiz, who won a surprise 20 percent in the first round of May’s presidential election and is now leader of Ruch JOW, was down eight percent on May.

Ryszard Petru’s ModernPL (NowoczesnaPL), supported by the architect of Poland’s post-communist economic transition, Leszek Balcerowicz, would win four percent, unchanged from May. The junior governing coalition party, the Polish People’s Party (PSL), would get three percent, as would the leftist Democratic Left Alliance (SLD), both also unchanged from May.
