Poll: ANO firms leading position, TOP 09 loses

8 October 2015

Prague, Oct 7 (CTK) - The Czech ANO movement firmed its lead on the senior ruling Social Democrats (CSSD) in September and the junior government Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) would also stay in the Chamber of Deputies, according to a STEM election model released to CTK Wednesday.

The Communists (KSCM) retained their third position. Support for the two rightist opposition parties, TOP 09 and the Civic Democrats (ODS), is about the same.

With the exception of ANO of Finance Minister Andrej Babis, all parties lost support, with TOP 09 being the biggest loser with almost three percentage points.

ANO would gain in September 28.1 percent of the vote (26.7 in June), the CSSD 20.6 percent (21.7), the KSCM 13.6 percent (14.7), TOP 09 6.9 percent (9.6), the ODS 6.2 percent (7.8), the KDU-CSL 5.9 percent (6.4).

ANO would have 77 mandates in the 200-seat Chamber of Deputies, the CSSD 57. They would together have a comfortable constitutional majority of 134 votes in the lower house of parliament.

The KSCM would have 33 lawmakers, the KDU-CSL would have 12 mandates thanks to its strong support in South Moravia, TOP 09 11 and the ODS ten.

Of the parties that would not cross the 5 percent parliamentary barrier, the Green Party would gain 4.4 percent of the vote. The Freedom and Direct Democracy movement of Tomio Okamura that bets on anti-migrant rhetoric would get 3.7 percent.
