Most Poles against holding presidential election on May 10

A vast majority of Poles (72.2 percent) oppose holding presidential elections as scheduled on May 10, a poll conducted by researcher IBRiS for the daily Rzeczpospolita shows.

Only 20.3 pct of respondents are in favour of keeping the date of the ballot unchanged and 7.4 pct have no opinion on the matter.

According to the poll, around 48 pct of the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party supporters are in favour of keeping to the election plan and hence they could be less afraid than the opposition electorate to show up and vote, IBRiS head Marcin Duma, cited by the newspaper, said.

The ruling camp could enjoy an increase in voter support after Easter as the COVID-19-related panic could start to fade away, he added.
