Six Parties Set to Enter Next Parliament - Poll

Six parties stand a chance to cross the 4.0% threshold for entry into parliament at the May 12 elections, a poll by local polling agency MBMD showed.

Bulgaria for the Citizens, led by former EU Commissioner Meglena Kuneva, and the National Front for Salvation of Bulgaria, will make it into the next parliament, alongside the four ones that have representatives in the current onee - GERB, the Bulgarian Socialist Party (BSP), the Movement for Rights and Freedoms, DPS, and nationalist Ataka, the Bulgarian National Television reported, quoting the poll results.

As many as 28% of the voters would support the centre-right party GERB if the elections were to be held today, BSP would come next with 19%, while DPS and Ataka would garner 5.2% each. Bulgaria for the Citizens would attract 4.1% of the voters' support against nearly 3.0% for the National Front for Salvation of Bulgaria.

The recent wiretapping scandal influenced the major parties the most, making voters look to the smaller parties instead, the poll showed.

The MBMD poll was conducted in the April 20-28 period.
