More than half of Poles believe that the PiS candidate should not be given the mission of forming a new government by the president. This is the result of a survey conducted by IBRiS, commissioned by the “Rzeczpospolita” daily.
Law and Justice won the parliamentary elections, but the support obtained – which translates into 194 deputies in the new Sejm – does not enable it to exercise power independently. Let us recall that the minimum parliamentary majority is 231 MPs.
Duda’s speech on the mission of forming a government
However, most importantly, all other parties have publicly ruled out the possibility of concluding a coalition with PiS. Despite this, PiS representatives argue that they are able to obtain the necessary majority.
Everything indicates that power will be held by an alliance of four parties – the Civic Coalition, the Polish People’s Party, Poland 2050 and the Left – which have a total of 248 MPs.
On Monday evening, November 6, President Andrzej Duda is to deliver a speech during which he will inform which politician he will entrust with the mission of forming a government. Two names are involved – Mateusz Morawiecki and Donald Tusk.
Who should be given the mission of forming a government?
The “Rzeczpospolita” daily has just published the results of a survey conducted on this matter by the IBRiS studio. The survey was conducted on November 3-5. “Should the PiS candidate receive the mission of forming a government from the president?” – IBRiS representatives asked the respondents.
More than half of the respondents – 58% to be precise. – answered this question in the negative. 48.1 percent respondents chose the “strongly disagree” option, and 9.9 percent “I rather disagree” option.
37.2 percent respondents answered affirmatively, of which 22.3 percent chose the “strongly agree” option, and 14.9 percent “I tend to agree.” Only 4.8 percent participants of the IBRiS survey chose the option “I don’t know/it’s hard to say”.
