Poll puts opposition parties in front

A second opinion poll released over the last week or so has suggested that if the national election were held today, the opposition Social Democrats and Communist Party would come in first and second, with the head of the current coalition, the Civic Democratic Party finishing third. According to the poll, conducted by ppm factum, the Social Democrats would secure 25.6 percent of the vote, the Communists 16.3 percent, and the right-of-centre Civic Democrats 15.7. The two opposition parties would win a combined total of 112 – a more than comfortable majority in the 200-seat Chamber of Deputies.

The survey suggests that three other parties would make it into the lower house: TOP 09 (10.5 percent), the Christian Democrats (6.4) and Zemanovci (5.7).
