Poland’s ruling conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party is leading in the polls. If elections were to be held today, the party would win 47% of the vote.

This is according to a study conducted by the Pollster Research Institute for the Super Express tabloid and for the Nowa television station.

The survey also found that the Civic Platform, the largest opposition party, can count on 19% support.

The Democratic Left Alliance, which has no parliamentary representation in the current term, is third, with 8%.

As reported by Radio Poland online, the survey found that the 5% threshold required for entering parliament would be exceeded by four other parties.

According to another survey – this one carried out by the Estymator Pollster for the website – support for PiS is even higher: 50.2%. The Civic Platform is second, with just under 23% and the Kukiz ‘15 grouping third, with 7.3%.
