Polish Election 2019 Parliament

The next parliamentary elections will take place in 2019. 460 deputies to the Sejm and 100 senators to the Senate will be elected by way of voting. The active electoral right is vested in adult citizens of Poland. When will the parliamentary elections be held in 2019 in Poland? Although the exact date of the election has not yet been announced, observers have started speculating about it.

The exact date of the parliamentary election 2019 is set by the president at the latest 90 days before the end of the parliamentary term. According to the Constitution of the Republic of Poland from 1997, these elections take place every four years, unless pre-term elections are ordered (in special cases, when the Sejm's term of office will be shortened by the Sejm or the President of the Republic of Poland) or will be prolonged if an extraordinary state is introduced. In addition, parliamentary elections 2019 should take place within 30 days before the end of the four-year parliamentary term. The current 7th term of office began on November 12, 2015. This means that the date of the parliamentary elections 2019 it should fall between October 12 and November 12. In addition, the vote should be held on a non-working day, so the following dates are at stake: 13, 20, 27 October, 3 or 10 November.

If the parliamentary elections were held in September 2018, only three parties would enter the Sejm - according to the latest CBOS survey. The PiS (together with Solidarna Polska and the Agreement) would get 43 percent support of people declaring voting. For the PO would vote 18 percent, and the movement kukiz'15 - 7 percent. The Sejm would come into only three groups - according to a survey by CBOS.

The other parties included in the survey would not exceed the electoral threshold: SLD would receive 4%, PSL 4%, Modern 3%. votes, and the party Wolnosc Janusz Korwin-Mikke and the Party Together for 2 percent. Those who were undecided would be supported by 16 percent. respondents declaring participation in elections.

A great result of the ruling party would give it an independent majority. Probably PiS with coalition partners could count on 276 deputies, and this would give the possibility of rejecting any presidential veto. In addition, the Sejm opposition would be reduced only to the PO, which with the Kukiz'15 neutrality would give Jaroslaw Kaczynski a particularly comfortable situation.

If the parliamentary elections were held in the first half of September, 71 percent would take part in them. Of respondents, 14 percent would not go to the polls, and 15 percent were undecided. The poll was carried out on 6-13 September on a group of adult inhabitants of Poland with 1064 members.

The daily Rzeczpospolita published the latest data on the perception of the president and prime minister by Poles. Neither Andrzej Duda nor Mateusz Morawiecki have reasons to be satisfied. Both politicians clearly decline in the September 2018 survey. As the daily revealed, Poles were losing confidence in the head of state and the head of government.

President Andrzej Duda is good or very good at only about 43 percent. respondents. Definitely more Poles have a worse opinion about him. 16.1 percent indicated that the president perceives rather bad, and as much as 35.5 percent gave him a very bad note. This is a total of as much as 51.5 percent negative evaluations.

It was equally bad for Mateusz Morawiecki. The premiere definitely sees only 19.7 percent. Poles. 24 percent evaluated his actions as rather good. And again, as in the case of President Duda, there are many more negative evaluations. 18.4 percent the respondents answered that the prime minister should be considered rather bad. Definitely evil has put up as much as 32.8 percent. respondents. Total 51.3 percent disgruntled. It's only 0.2 percent. better than with President Andrzej Duda! This is a clear signal for the politicians of the ruling camp - it's time to think about the style of exercising power.

"This is a relative similarity of assessments, which is clear and high in this study, is related to the perception of both these politicians as centers of power" a political scientist from the University of Warsaw, prof. Ewa Marciniak. said in an interview with "Rzeczpospolita".
