Left still seeking deal before local elections
August 12, 2014
Leftist political party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) is attracting activists of the leftist liberal grouping Your Movement ahead of local elections scheduled for this November while both parties have so far failed to reach an agreement on the prospective co-operation.
SLD proposed Your Movement to place its activists on the election lists of SLD without using the name Your Movement in the name of electoral committee. Your Movement's leader Janusz Palikot does not agree to such proposal, but a number of the party members are making arrangements to run from SLD lists, SLD secretary general Krzysztof Gawkowski said.
Your Move's vice chairman Marek Siwiec claims he has not heard of such transfers and stresses that talks on a prospective alliance with SLD will start after August 15.
