Prague, April 21 (CTK) – The Social Democrats (CSSD) have caught up with the leading ANO movement in popularity and the two Czech ruling parties would be supported by 26.5 and 27 percent of the voters, respectively, if elections were held now, according to a CVVM poll released on Thursday.

In March, ANO was 4.5 percentage points ahead of the CSSD, the pollsters said.

Six parties would enter the lower house of Czech parliament now, the poll showed.

The Communists (senior opposition KSCM) remained the third strongest party, although their preferences fell from 13 to 11.5 percent over the past month.

The Civic Democrats (ODS) won 8.5 percent of the vote, 1.5 percentage points less then in March. The other right-wing opposition party, TOP 09, improved its result from 5.5 to 8 percent.

The smallest government party, the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL), gained 7.5 percent.

Neither of the parties that formed from the splintered Dawn movement of populist Tomio Okamura exceeded the 5-percent threshold. Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD) won 2.5 percent and Dawn-National Coalition 1.5 percent.

The Greens gained 3 percent and the Pirates 2 percent.

The turnout would be 59 percent, or similar to the general election held in October 2013.

CVVM conducted the poll on 1063 people in early April and its election model includes only those who would take part in an election and decided which party they would support.
