A poll finds that Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the twin brother of the Polish president killed in an April plane crash, is gaining support in his bid for the presidency but not enough to overtake his rival.

The survey by the PBS DGA center for the Gazeta Wyborcza daily showed on Monday that Kaczynski would win 38 percent support in June 20 elections, while parliament speaker Bronislaw Komorowski, the governing party's candidate, would get 50 percent. If no candidate musters 50 percent, a run-off will be held on July 4.

A survey by the same institute published on May 5 gave Komorowski 50 percent and Kaczynski 31 percent. Since then, Kaczynski has emerged from mourning and started campaigning more actively. The margin of error was plus or minus 3 points.
