The ruling United Right holds a narrow lead over the centrist Civic Coalition (KO), Poland's main opposition bloc, according to a new poll.

In the Kantar Public poll the United Right, which consists of Law and Justice, the dominant party, and Solidary Poland and the Republican Party, received 29-percent voter support (down 1 percentage point on the last poll), only 2 percent more than KO (up 1 percentage point).

The survey also found that if the election were to be held now, 8 percent of those polled would back the Poland 2050 grouping, 7 percent would vote for the Left and 6 percent for the right-wing Confederation

None of the remaining groups would cross the 5-percent threshold needed to win seats in the lower house of parliament, the Sejm.

The declared turnout for a general election would be 68 percent.

The poll was conducted on a random sample of 980 Poles from September 2 to 7.
