Euroskeptics Join Forces

Four Euroskeptic parties—Libertas Polska, the League of Polish Families (LPR), Forward Poland and Piast Party—will run together in Poland’s European Parliament elections June 7.

Artur Zawisza, a former Law and Justice (PiS) parliamentarian and now deputy chairman of Libertas, said all four parties had decided to run together on the Libertas ticket. Zawisza said talks were still under way on the final shape of the election lists in individual constituencies. The lists have to be registered by April 28.

Libertas is an international association set up by Irish multimillionaire Declan Ganley, an opponent of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty. Ganley’s campaign played a big role in the Irish rejection of the treaty in a referendum.

Libertas aims to build a pan-European political party able to succeed in European Parliament elections. Libertas Polska, the Polish branch of Libertas, was registered in mid-March. It has no chairman, but is headed by two deputy chairmen, Zawisza and Daniel Pawłowiec, a former LPR parliamentarian.

Polish politicians running for European Parliament seats on the Libertas ticket include former LPR leader Wojciech Wierzejski, and several Forward Poland politicians, including the party’s leader Janusz Dobrosz, deputy chairman Janusz Szewczak, and two members of the European Parliament, Dariusz Grabowski and Bogusław Rogalski. The Piast Party will probably field its leader Zdzisław Podkański and Eurodeputy Janusz Wojciechowski.
