Poll: Eight Parties and Coalitions Likely to Enter Next Legislature in Bulgaria

Eight parties and coalitions stand a chance of entering the next legislature, according to a Sova Harris poll published on Wednesday.

The poll was carried out among 1,000 adults by face-to-face interviews between September 22 and 26 and was commissioned by PIK Broadcasting. 

According to the poll, if elections were held today, GERB-UDF would garner 27.5% of the vote, Continue the Change 19%, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms 12.5%, BSP for Bulgaria 12.1%, Vazrazhdane 9.5%, Democratic Bulgaria 5.7%, There Is Such a People 4.6%, Bulgarian Rise 4.2%, Rise Up Bulgaria 2.9%, VMRO 1.1% and other parties 0.9%.

According to the poll, 47% of voters are certain to vote in the October 2 elections. Pollsters say that those voters who are undecided usually don't vote. This means that around 2.6 million people would go to the polls on Sunday, accounting for little over 40% of voters on election rolls and for slightly less than 50% of voters in the country, Sova Harris said.

Some 40.1% of voters expect that GERB-UDF will win the elections, while 17.5% of voters expect that Continue the Change will win. 

According to 22.6% of respondents, a government formed on a mandate of GERB-UDF will be most successful in steering Bulgaria out of the crisis. Nearly as many people, 21.9%, believe that this would happen on a mandate of Continue the Change. Some 20.6% think that a government formed on the third mandate by a party or coalition chosen by the President will be more successful. 

The caretaker government will create conditions for fair and democratic elections, according to 44.8% of adult Bulgarians, while 21.7% have doubts. 

According to the data, 30.9% of respondents say that they don't have money to cover basic necessities, 62.6% say that money is just enough for necessities and 6.5% have incomes which allow them to save. 

Half of voters in the country think that Bulgaria should not become a presidential republic. However, 21.7% back this form of government.
