This is the best result for the ruling party (PiS) since January this year and the worst for the main opposition (PO) since November 2015.

The survey reports that in addition to PO and PiS, two parties would hold mandates in the Polish  Sejm – Kukiz’15 and the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD). Both would have 6 percent of the votes. The peasant party (PSL, 4 percent), the Modern party (PO’s biggest ally, 4 percent), the Freedom party (2 percent) Together party (1 percent) are below threshold and would not hold any mandates.

Compared with August, Kukiz’15 saw a 1 percent increase, SLD and PSL remain unchanged and the Modern, Freedom and Together parties have seen 1 percent decreases.
