If the municipal election of October were held today, only 5% would vote for the right-wing populist Perussuomalaiset (PS) party, according to a poll published Wednesday by MTV3. The latest poll is further proof that support for the PS continues to plummet compared with the impressive gains it made in last year’s election.
In the April 2011 election, the PS won 19.1% (39 seats) of the vote compared with 4.05% (5 seats) in 2007.
The biggest winner in the MTV3 poll is the National Coalition Party (23%) followed by the Social Democrats (21%) and Center Party (20%), which has made an impressive comeback after its disastrous election result in 2011. The Greens and Left Alliance would get 9% apiece.
