Poll puts Pirates and Mayors three points ahead of ANO

A new opinion poll from the Median agency suggests that the electoral coalition of the Pirate Party and the Mayors & Independents would have come first with 27.5 percent of the vote if elections had been held in March. Government leaders ANO would finish second on 24.5 percent, the survey indicates.

A coalition of the Civic Democrats, the Christian Democrats and TOP 09 garnered 17.5 percent support from respondents in the poll, while Tomio Okamura’s Freedom and Direct Democracy got 10 percent.

The Social Democrats, the junior party in the current coalition, would not reach the threshold to make the lower house, the survey indicates.

General elections are planned for October.
