Poll: left would not be able to form a parliamentary majority
Left-wing parties would not be able to form a parliamentary majority if elections were held today, according to a new poll. The survey, conducted by the agency Factum Invenio, suggests that the senior coalition party, the Civic Democrats, have gained in popularity in July, decreasing the lead of the opposition Social Democrats. The Communist Party lost two hypothetical seats, leaving them in third place. The left-wing parties in such a situation would have exactly 100 seats in the lower house. Six parties would cross the 5% election threshold, including TOP 09, the Christian Democrats and the Miloš Zeman party.
