Prague - Seven political parties would enter Czech parliament if the general election were held in late September, including the ANO movement, the Zemanites (SPOZ) and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL), according to a STEM agency´s poll released today.
Compared with the previous poll STEM conducted in early September, the ANO went on winning over new voters. The Civic Democrats (ODS) and the Communists (KSCM) slightly improved their positions, while TOP 09 and the election favourite Social Democrats (CSSD) slightly lost, the poll showed.
The CSSD is nevertheless still the clearly most popular party and it would win 28 percent of the vote and 72 seats in the 200-member Chamber of Deputies, followed by the KSCM with 17 percent and 41 seats, according to the STEM election model.
The pollsters noted that the strength of the possible future left-wing government alliance would remain the same as in early September.
The two parties would have a comfortable majority in the lower house.
The ODS is more popular than its right-wing rival TOP 09 once again. The ODS would win 30 seats and TOP 09 24 seats.
The ANO of billionaire Andrej Babis would win 18 seats, the Party of Citizens´ Rights - the Zemanites (SPOZ) 8 seats and the Christian Democrats 7 seats.
The poll said two thirds of eligible voters would take part in the election now.
The early general election will be held on October 25-26.
The poll was conducted on 1043 people aged over 18 on September 15-21.
