Two weeks before the elections the gap between GERB and "We Continue the Change" reached nearly 7%, said the director of the Center for Analysis and Marketing (CAM) Yulii Pavlov. According to him, six parties will enter the parliament and two more have a chance to cross the 4% barrier. The poll was conducted from 15 to 19 September at the expense of CAM on a panel of 1,011 adult Bulgarians.

Thus, the GERB-UDF coalition would get 25% of the vote, followed by "We Continue the Change" /18%/, MRF - 12.8%, BSP - just over 11%, "Vazrazhdane" - 10.5%, "Democratic Bulgaria" - 8.1%. "There Is Such a People" and the new party "Bulgarian Rise" party of former caretaker Prime Minister Stefan Yanev might narrowly pass the 4 percent barrier.

According to the survey, a record low turnout is expected, with no more than two and a half million going to the polls, BNR reporter Svetoslava Kuzmanova said.
