A new poll suggests Ahn Cheol-soo would win a one-on-one race for the Seoul mayor’s office against the anticipated candidate of the ruling Democratic Party. 
 
Southern Post R&C said it surveyed a thousand adults over three days. Forty-one-point-five percent said they’d vote for Ahn, the current head of the minor opposition People’s Party and a former presidential candidate. 
 
Thirty-three-point-five percent said they’d support Park Young-sun, the former SMEs and Startup minister. She recently resigned from President Moon’s cabinet, apparently to prepare a run for mayor. 
 
The survey comes amid uncertainty surrounding whether the main opposition People Power Party(PPP) will agree with Ahn to field a unified opposition candidate. Ten candidates from the conservative party have already announced a run. 
 
Southern Post also asked the public if they’d support Park or former PPP Floor Leader Na Kyung-won in a hypothetical two-way race. According to that poll, Na came away with a slight edge of 38-point-three percent to 36-point-one percent. 
 
In a hypothetical competition between Park and former Seoul Mayor Oh Se-hoon, also from the PPP, Park led with 35 percent over Oh’s 31-point-five percent.

The survey, commissioned by the Weekly Chosun, had a confidence level of 95 percent with a margin of error of three-point-one percentage points.
