Nearly half of respondents, in the survey conducted by Kantar for "Fakty" TVN and TVN24, said President Andrzej Duda should not sign the bill on court reforms, also known as "repressive act" or "muzzle law".

The question asked in the survey was on whether or not should President Andrzej Duda sign the bill on court reforms, that would allow judges critical of the justice system reforms to be disciplined. 33 percent of those asked said "definitely not", while 16 percent - "rather not".

In total, nearly half (49 percent) of those surveyed gave negative answers. The options "definitely yes" and "rather yes" were picked by 18 and 17 percent of respondents respectively. In total, 35 percent gave positive answers to the question.

The answer "don't know/hard to say" was picked by 16 percent.

The telephone survey was conducted by Kantar on January 29-30 on a nationwide, representative sample of people aged 18+. The sample size was 1.000 people.

The draft law, already approved by the parliament, would allow judges who question planned reforms to be disciplined.

The ruling nationalist Law and Justice party (PiS) says it will make the judiciary more efficient.

Critics, including the European Commission, claim the law would violate the rule of law and judicial independence principles.
