Ruling camp's lead over opposition parties narrows in poll

The centrist Civic Coalition (KO), the main adversary of Poland's ruling United Right coalition, has closed the gap to seven percentage points, the latest Kantar poll has shown.

Support for the United Right, composed of its backbone party Law and Justice, Solidary Poland and the Republicans dropped by 3 percentage points to 32 percent whereas KO's backing increased by 3 percentage points to 25 percent from the previous poll, Kantar said on Wednesday.

Poland 2050, a new grassroots movement led by TV personality and Catholic writer Szymon Hołownia, could count on 12 percent of the vote, up by 3 percentage points.

The Left, with 6-percent support, is another party that would pass the 5 percent parliamentary threshold.

The far-fight Confederation with 4-percent backing, the Polish Coalition-Polish People's Party supported by 3 percent of respondents, Kukiz'15 and former Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin's Agreement (Porozumienie) party, both on 1-percent, would fail to win parliamentary seats.

The declared turnout stood at 68 percent.

Kantar ran the poll on a sample of 667 adult Poles on September 3-8, 2021.
