Of the four political parties in Parliament, only the ones in the opposition managed to increase their popularity in November, according to the freshly published TNS Emor survey commissioned by BNS.

The opposition's Centre Party support rose by three percentage points to 23 percent and the Social Democrats popularity increased by one point to 24 percent, Postimees reported.

Although the support for the governing coalition leader, the Reform Party dropped by one point to 31 percent, it still remains the most popular party in Estonia.

The support to IRL did not change from last month, and the party held on to its fourth position with 16 percent.

The support for the Green Party that lost its representation in Parliament in March dropped by one percentage point to 3 percent, while the People's Union remained at its 2 percent mark.

The poll was compiled from responses by 794 people. 30 percent reported no preference.
