Public support for ruling party slipping


Public support for the ruling Civic Democratic Party is slipping, according to a poll conducted by the Median agency. The outcome of the poll suggests that if elections were held today the opposition Social Democrats would come out the winner with 37 percent support. The Civic Democrats would come second with 28,2 percent support and the Communist Party would place third with 16,6 percent. The main governing party puts its slide in popularity down to the need to implement painful reforms.
