US survey anticipates a change in political status quo of Poland
Even if PiS enters into a coalition with the Confederation, they would still be 6 seats short of a majority in the 460-seat-parliament, which is a precondition for creating a government.
Incumbent Law and Justice (PiS) party may be usurped by opposition groups for failing to garner enough seats in the next parliamentary elections that are scheduled to take place in fall 2023, according to the results of a survey conducted by United Surveys on 1,000 adult Polish citizens over the span of 2 days. The following results were yielded:
- Law and Justice party: 34.7%
- Civic Coalition alliance (the main opposition party): 28%
- The Coalition of Left-wing parties: 8.2%
- the Confederation: 7.3%
- Poland 2050: 7.1%
- Polish People’s Party: 6.9%
- 40% of respondents are not going to vote at all
- 2.3% have not made their minds up yet
According to the numbers, even if PiS enters into a coalition with the Confederation (which is an alliance of far-right and Eurosceptic parties), they would still be 6 seats short of a majority in the 460-seat-parliament, which is a precondition for creating a government.
