Elections a'commin'

According to the PAP state news agency - Poland's ruling conservative Law and Justice party leads its pro-business opposition by 34% to 30% in a new opinion poll published ahead of elections in late October.

The poll showed the Left and Democrats grouping would also make it into parliament with 17%, along with the far-right League of Polish Families on 6 pct and the Peasants Party on 5%.

Law and Justice would take 180 of the lower house of parliament's 460 seats, well short of a majority, compared to the pro-business Civic Platform's 159 pct.

Financial markets are hoping the Platform will take the leading role in a new administration after two years of conservative government that has done little to push on with privatisation and reform of public finances.

The poll was conducted between August 31 and Sept 13.
