Over 60 pc MPs To Lose Seats In August Elections


More than 60 per cent of MPs are likely to lose their seats, an opinion poll released by Ipsos shows.

According to the poll, 42 per cent of respondents said their MP is not likely to be reelected, 39 per cent said they are likely to retain their seats, while 19 per cent said “don’t know”.

Among Jubilee supporters, 46 per cent believe their MPs will not be reelected, while 37 per cent of opposition supporters have a similar view.

At the Coast, the possibility of re-election and of being voted out is equal at 33 per cent, with 34 per cent not sure.

The study asked respondents about their knowledge of their MPs, their re-election chances, and whether change of political affiliation was a blessing or a political curse.
