The latest poll from Market and Media Research (MMR) shows that while support for the ruling coalition is still well below 50%, two of the three parties in the coalition are showing signs of recovery.
The Independence Party is still the largest party in the country, polling now at 22%, up from 19% during the last poll. The Left-Greens, who lead the ruling coalition with the Independence Party, went from 8.7% to 10.7%, while the Progressives—the third party in the coalition—went from 7.2% to 6.8%.
All told, ruling coalition support is at 41.9%, up from 38.9% during the last poll. Where opposition parties are concerned, the results were decidedly mixed.
The Social Democrats are the largest opposition party, polling higher than the Left-Greens and the Progressives, having gone from 16.6% to 15.1%. The Centre Party also saw a dip in support, from 15.1% to 13.3%, and the Reform Party also lost some support, going from 12.4% to 9.7%.
However, support for the Pirate Party remained relatively unchanged, from 10.6% to 10.4%, while two opposition parties saw a rise in support: the Socialist Party, who went from 4.9% to 5.3%, and the People’s Party, who went from 3.8% to 4.6%.
Barring unforeseen circumstances, the next parliamentary elections will be held next year.
