Prague, March 30 (CTK) – Finance Minister Andrej Babis’ ANO would win an election to the Czech Chamber of Deputies if it were held in March, with an almost 10-percent lead over the second Social Democrats (CSSD), according to a poll conducted by the STEM polling institute and released yesterday.
In all, six parties would get over the 5 percent threshold and enter the Chamber of Deputies.
Along with the two parties, these would be also the Communists (KSCM), the junior government Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL), the opposition centre-right Civic Democratic Party (ODS) and the opposition conservative TOP 09.
ANO would now gain 28.2 percent of the vote, the CSSD 18.5 percent and the Communists 14 percent.
The KDU-CSL would now be elected by 6.9 percent, the ODS by 6.9 percent and TOP 09 by 6.3 percent of Czechs.
The rest of the parties now in the Chamber of Deputies, the Dawn-National Coalition and the Freedom and Direct Democracy, which are strongly against migrants, would not get into the Chamber of Deputies as they are now only popular with 2.8 percent and 4.5 percent of Czechs, respectively.
Out of the extra-parliamentary parties, the Greens would now receive 2.5 percent of the vote and the Pirates 2.8 percent.
STEM estimated turnout at 58 percent. Some 56 percent of Czechs are set to go to the polling stations and 19 percent are not. One-quarter have not made up their mind.
