47% of respondents said they would use their right to vote in the upcoming parliamentary elections. The distance between the leading parties - GERB and BSP, has been increasing slightly and currently GERB receives support from 28.9% of respondents, while BSP has 24.1%. "There Is Such a People" keeps third place with 12.9%. The MRF follows with 11.1%. According to the poll, Democratic Bulgaria is the fifth safe participant in the next parliament with 6.2%.
