Leftist parties won’t create joint list to local elections
August 25, 2014
Left-wing party Your Movement will present its own lists in the upcoming local elections rather than create a joint list with left-wing party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD), Your Movement leader Janusz Palikot said on Thursday evening.
Both parties had been discussing joint lists for the past several weeks.
SLD blames Palikot for the fiasco of talks on the alliance saying that the latter did not want to accept the name of their joint initiative.
According to Your Movement's MP Wincenty Elsner, regional structures of SLD, which were not ready for a compromise, are to be blamed.
Lack of a joint list is a more serious problem for Your Movement, which may have trouble to present a proper number of candidates.
