Poland’s ruling coalition strengthens its leading position ahead of October elections

An opinion poll published on Monday showed that Poland’s ruling Law and Justice Party (PiS) has increased its advantage over the opposition Civic Coalition (KO).

According to the poll, the United Right (PiS, Sovereign Poland, Republican Party) would win the election with 36.76 per cent of the vote and an increase of 1.17 percentage points.

Second place would go to the Civic Coalition (PO [Civic Platform], Nowoczesna [Modern], Zieloni [Greens]) with a preliminary 30.44 per cent of the vote, up 0.09 percentage points from the previous figure.

Trzecia Droga (Third Way) can count on 9.81%, while the Left (an alliance of SLD, Wiosna [Spring] and Razem [Together]) would gain 9.72%. The far-right coalition lost 1.73 percentage points of voters and can now count on 8.67%.

Political analyst Kazimierz Kik attributes the PiS party’s success to effective electoral tactics and the deep support of its voters.

PiS’s election tactics have turned out to be effective. And surprisingly, support for PiS is growing despite the visa scandal, which means that the party’s electorate is immune to issues related to migrants.

Polish President Andrzej Duda decided to hold parliamentary elections on October 15. Poles will elect 460 deputies and 100 senators for a four-year term.
