Ruling party holds comfortable lead over opposition - poll

Were elections to be held in April, Poland's ruling party, the conservative Law and Justice (PiS), would leave its two main opponents far behind by so much that their combined result would still be lower than PiS, a poll has shown.

In the latest CBOS poll, PiS would win the general election with 32 percent of the vote. The former television star Szymon Holownia's Polska 2050 movement would get 16 percent and the centrist Civic Coalition - 14 percent.

The other two parties that would get parliamentary seats include the Left and the far-right Confederation, both on 5 percent backing.

In Poland, 5 percent is the threshold required to win seats in the lower house of parliament.

The expected turnout reached 73 percent, the poll showed.

CBOS carried out the survey on a representative sample of 1,131 adult Poles on April 8-18, 2021.
