The Christian Democrats (KDu-CSL) and senator Tomio Okamura´s Dawn of Direct Democracy would each get 5 percent, which is the parliamentary barrier.

Other parties would not cross the threshold. The Party of Citizens´ Rights - the Zemanites (SPOZ) would gain 3.5 percent of the vote, the Czech Pirates 2.5 percent and the Green Party (SZ) 2.0 percent.

Other parties would get around 1 percent of the vote.

Turnout would be 63 percent, according to the poll, conducted on October 7-14.

The poll authors said this survey cannot be compared with the previous ones because of a different method of questioning people used.
