Regarding the April general election next year, 49.8 percent of respondents said that the opposition should become the majority party to check the regime, and 37.4 percent said that the ruling party should become the majority party to empower the administration.
The latter is 12.4 percentage points higher than the former.
Don’t know/no response was 12.8%.
The differences in the survey questions make it difficult to make a straightforward comparison, but a month earlier (which included “none of the above” responses in addition to don’t know/no response), it was a close race, with 34.5 percent saying the opposition should become the majority party to check the regime and 32.3 percent saying the ruling party should become the majority party to empower the country.
The survey was conducted using a 100% telephone interview method with a response rate of 20.5%. For more information, please visit the Central Election Opinion Survey Review Committee website.
