Rome, January 18 - The centre-right coalition led
by ex-Premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party
closed the gap on the centre-left on Friday, less than six weeks
before Italians were due to go to the polls to elect their new
parliament.
The centre-left coalition led by the Democratic Party (Pd)
and its secretary Pier Luigi Bersani continued to top the weekly
SWG opinion poll at 33%.
However this was a 1.9% drop over the same day last week
due to a fall in support for both the Pd and its main ally, Left
Ecology Freedom (SEL) of Puglia Governor Nichi Vendola.
The centre-right coalition came in at 27.2%, compared with
25.3% last week - a 1.9% gain.
The rise in support was largely due to a 2% increase in the
popularity of PdL, which offset a slight drop in support for its
regionalist coalition partner Northern League.
The centrist grouping led by outgoing technocrat Premier
Mario Monti remained stable at 13.7%, just over three percentage
points behind the populist and anti-establishment Five Star
Movement (M5S) of Genoa comedian Beppe Grillo.
After weeks of negative performance by the M5S a 0.9% rise
in popularity took it to 16.8%.
