A recent opinion poll conducted by IBRiS for Radio ZET has unveiled a strong sentiment against Poland’s potential entry into the eurozone. The survey, reflecting the views of over 1,000 Polish citizens, indicates that more than 60 percent are hesitant or outright against a new coalition government’s move to transition from the zloty to the euro.
19.5 percent expressed a reluctance toward the shift, while a staggering 43.4 percent stood resolutely against embracing the euro. A notable portion, approximately 15.9 percent, remained undecided on this critical matter.
The survey divulged that the primary resistance to relinquishing the zloty stems from supporters of Law and Justice (PiS), accounting for a staggering 85 percent of those adamantly against joining the eurozone. On the other end, 43 percent of proponents for the euro align themselves with the liberal-democratic camp encompassing the KO, The Third Way, and the New Left.
Despite Poland’s commitment to introduce the euro outlined in the 2003 Treaty of Accession to the European Union, Radio ZET’s website highlights the absence of both political will and concrete economic measures that would pave the way for Poland’s integration into the common EU currency.
This comprehensive survey by IBRiS, commissioned by Radio ZET, took place on November 10, 2023, involving a representative sample of 1,067 Polish citizens.
