PSD would win Euro-parliamentary polls, survey

The Social Liberal Union (ruling USL) would win a majority in Parliament if general elections were held next Sunday, shows a survey conducted by Infopolitic Centre of Studies and Research (CSCI) released on Thursday and quoted by Agerpres. As much as 61 percent of the respondents would vote for the candidates of the USL, an alliance of Social Democrats (PSD), National Liberals (PNL) and Conservatives. Coming in second would be the opposition Democratic Liberal Party (PDL) with 17 percent. Other parties in the CSCI survey would get the following results: Dan Diaconescu People’s Party (PPDD, in opposition) 5 percent, the Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR, in opposition) 5 percent, the non-parliamentary Greater Romania Party (PRM) 3 percent and the recently set up People’s Movement (MP) 3 percent. Should elections for the European Parliament take place next Sunday, the PSD would get most votes, 40 percent. Next ranking would be the PNL with 21 percent, PDL 17 percent, PPDD 4 percent, UDMR 5 percent, PRM 3 percent, MP 3 percent, the Conservatives (PC) 2 percent, others 5 percent. Governor of the National Bank of Romania (BNR) Mugur Isarescu, Bucharest General Mayor Sorin Oprescu and Prime Minister Victor Ponta are the most trusted Romanian politicos, according to the findings of the same poll. Isarescu is trusted by 56 per cent of Romanians, Oprescu by 49 per cent, while Ponta is trusted by 48 per cent of Romanians. Just 30 per cent of the respondents say they trust Chairman of the Senate Crin Antonescu, 26 per cent President Traian Basescu and 16 per cent Democratic Liberal Party’s Elena Udrea. Asked about the conflict between the President and the Prime Minister, 86 per cent of the respondents agreed that ‘USL should focus on governing, and ignore the President’s attacks,’ while 8 per cent disagreed with the statement. The CSCI poll was conducted at national level, August 12-15, 2013 on a sample of 1.100 adult people using the CATI method.
