The Center Party and IRL, two parties locked in a fierce campaign battle in Tallinn, have increased their ratings at the parliamentary level, a fresh Emor survey has found.

The ERR-commissioned survey is one of two that Emor has been conducting each month in the run-up to the October 20 local elections.

If elections for the nation's Parliament were to be held today, the Center Party would claim 29 percent of the votes, up three percentage points compared with a month ago.

IRL has increased its popularity by four percentage points, to 18, while its coalition partner, the Reform Party, has the backing of 21 percent of the voters, up from 20 percent in August.

The only major party in opposition in both the Parliament and in Tallinn, the Social Democrats, has lost two percentage points, falling to 23 percent.

The Green Party's support level fell from 5 to 4 percent, putting it below the threshold needed for representation in Parliament, while support for the Conservative People's Party also dropped, falling from 4 to 3 percent.

The second poll, focusing on popularity in local elections, should be published over the weekend.
