Prague - The senior opposition Czech Social Democratic Party (CSSD) would now win a general election with 30.5 percent of the vote, followed by the minor and senior government parties, TOP 09 (17.5 percent) and Civic Democrats (ODS, 15.5 percent), according to a Median poll released today.
The opposition Communists (KSCM) would come fourth with 15 percent.
Representatives of the Party of Citizens Rights of Milos Zeman (SPOZ) and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) would also enter the Chamber of Deputies.
Compared with Median´s February poll the order of the parties would not change. The CSSD has, however, lost 2.5 percentage points and the ODS 0.5 percentage points.
The KDU-CSL would also lose 0.5 percentage points to 5 percent while the SPOZ has firmed by 2.5 percentage points to 5.5 percent.
Support for the KSCM rose month-on-month by 1 percentage point and TOP 09 added 0.5 percentage points.
The extra-parliamentary Green Party (3.5 percent) as well as the opposition Public Affairs (VV, 1 percent) would stay outside the Chamber of Deputies. The barrier is 5 percent.
Median says the statistical margin of error is plus minus 3.5 percentage points for large parties and 1 percentage point for the small ones.
Turnout would be 62.5 percent, which is almost the same as in the May 2010 general election (62.6 percent).
Median conducted the poll on 1184 people over 18 from February 17 to March 16.
The CSSD would win elections with a big lead on TOP 09 according to other polls released this week as well. The order in further positions, however, differs. The KSCM would come third in both CVVM and STEM polls while the ODS dropped to fourth position.
