    One-third of Poles opt for bringing back compulsory military service in Poland, a new poll reveals.

    The survey by the Social Changes pollster for the wPolityce.pl website put those in favour of conscription at 34 per cent with 43 per cent opposed and 23 per cent having no opinion.

    Support for military service was expressed by 49 per cent of voters for the ruling United Right coalition while among supporters of the main opposition grouping, Civic Coalition (KO), 51 per cent were against the move, with one in three being in favour.

    Social Changes conducted the poll between December 30, 2022, and January 2, 2023, on a representative national sample of 1,051 Poles using the Computer Assisted Web Interview method.
