Luxembourg's parliament would look very different if elections were held tomorrow, according to a new poll
A new Luxembourg poll, conducted for Tageblatt, gives the CSV 39% of the votes, while the current coalition between DP, LSAP and Déi Gréng would get together just 41%.
French polling institute Ifop conducted a survey with a sample of just 827 eligible voters in Luxembourg between 9 and 19 October, asking who they would vote for if elections were held tomorrow.
Only 13% would vote for the current prime minister’s DP party, a loss of 6%. The LSAP would lose 4%; only the Greens would increase their support from 10,3% in 2013 to 13%. These results would not enable them to continue the current coalition.
The ADR, Déi Lénk and Piratepartei would all gain votes.
Alex Bodry (LSAP) noted that the system of panachage was not taken into account in the survey, being only based on party preferences. However, the LSAP would take these results to distinguish their party profile even more.
Viviane Loschetter (Déi Gréng) stated that smaller parties were getting more votes, and that the Greens had done a good job in government, which was appreciated by the voters.
Jean Schoos (ADR) stated that he was surprised that the DP and Déi Gréng were getting the same results. He attributed the increase in support for his party to a “constructive opposition.”
