The unification of the opposition will allow for balanced competition with the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party in the elections to the European Parliament, according to an IBRiS survey for the Rzeczpospolita daily. The survey, conducted on 9-10 March, shows that PiS is in the lead with 40 percent support. The coalition consisting of Civic Platform (PO), the Polish People's Party (PSL), the Nowoczesna Party, the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) and the Greens, achieved 38 percent in the polls. The electoral threshold will be crossed by Robert Biedroń's Spring party (7 percent) and the Kukiz'15 party (5 percent). "This result gives the PO party and its alliance hope for victory in the May elections," the paper said. According to Rzeczpospolita, turnout will be a decisive factor for the election results. An IBRiS survey shows that so far 48 percent of respondents have declared participation in the elections on May 26.
