Poll: elections held today would give majority to Social Democrats and Communists


A survey carried out by the SANEP polling agency suggests that the Social Democratic Party would win if elections were held today, and would be able to form a majority of 104 seats with the Communist Party. According to SANEP, the Social Democrats would win 34% of the vote, the Civic Democrats and TOP 09 roughly 17%, the Communists 13% and Public Affairs 8%. The poll notes a growing inclination of voters towards left-wing parties due to fears that planned government reforms will have wide-ranging social effects.
