VISEGRAD GROUP COUNTRY CITIZENS BACK NEITHER WEBER NOR TIMMERMANS

 

The majority of citizens of Visegrad Group (V4) countries support neither European Peoples Party lead candidate for the post of European Commission president Manfred Weber nor Socialist candidate Frans Timmermans, according to a Nézőpont poll. Fully 80% of Czechs, Poles, Hungarians and Slovakians back neither politician and 42% expressed a clear preference for the option of an alternative candidate. Only 11% expressed a clear preference for Weber while 9% did the same for Timmermans. Nézőpont said V4 leaders enjoyed a strong mandate in Brussels, based on the outcome of the EP election. Moreover, none of them were bound to any of the top candidates, it added. Nézőpont’s survey was conducted between May 27 and June 7 in the Visegrad countries with a total sample of 2,000 people, 500 from each country.
