Poland’s main opposition has taken the lead in opinion polls just a week before election day. The centre-right Civic Platform party led by Donald Tusk is describing it as a turning point in its campaign. In one latest poll, Civic Platform is 10 points ahead of the ruling conservative Law and Justice party of prime minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
The change in fortune for the opposition seems to have come after a television debate between Tusk and Kaczynski on Friday night. Latest opinion polls also show two other parties would make it into parliament, including an alliance of leftist wingers. Election day is set for October 21.
