Poland's ruling party has 40% support before Oct.13 vote - Reuters poll

WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland’s ruling nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party continues to command the highest support of any political grouping ahead of parliamentary elections in October, according to a poll published on Thursday.

A poll by Kantar for private broadcaster TVN on Sept. 25-26 showed the PiS-led coalition with 40% support, while its main rival, Civic Coalition, which includes Civic Platform (PO), was at 28%. Leftist bloc Lewica had 10% and Konfederacja had 7%.

Poland, the biggest post-communist European Union member country, will hold elections to the lower and upper houses of parliament on Oct. 13 after four years of PiS rule.
