As Poland eagerly anticipates its upcoming general election, a recent survey has shed light on the current political landscape. The ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party is poised to secure a substantial 33.8 percent of the vote, according to a survey published on Wednesday. This places PiS comfortably ahead of its main rival, the centrist Civic Coalition (KO), which garnered 28.1 percent support, as indicated by the United Surveys poll for the Wirtualna Polska website.
The parliamentary race doesn’t end with PiS and KO. Joining them in the political arena are three other significant groups: The New Left, The Third Way (a coalition comprising the center-right Poland 2050 and agrarian Polish People’s Party), and the far-right Confederation (Konfederacja). The New Left has garnered the support of 10.2 percent of the electorate, while The Third Way follows closely with 9.4 percent. Meanwhile, Confederation enjoys the backing of 8.4 percent of voters. Intriguingly, 7.8 percent of those surveyed remain undecided on their voting choice.
As the nation prepares for Sunday’s election, early indicators suggest a turnout of 66.9 percent, according to Wirtualna Polska’s report. United Survey conducted this poll between October 8 and 10, with a sample size of 1,000 people.
