Pawel Kukiz
The recent presidential election dark horse Pawel Kukiz has no intention of presenting any particular program for the coming parliamentary election and will instead focus on encouraging Poles to take part in a referendum on changing the election system in Poland, Kukiz said during a meeting of supporters of single mandate voting system.

"Today we will not talk about the movement, we will talk about it once we are strong and consolidated and when we exceed the referendum threshold which will force the authorities to accept the vote," Kukiz said.

"We have to be patient. We have to make sure the biggest possible number of people take part in the referendum. That's the priority," he added.

Kukiz's rally attracted around two thousand supporters of single-mandate districts, but the event may have proved a disappointment for those who expected a program for the coming parliamentary election.

Kukiz said he will refrain from announcing a program ahead of elections, calling electoral programs "the biggest election lie."

"Our movement should stand out when it comes to transparency and ethics," he said. "If I know that party programs are the biggest election lie, the biggest trick, can I - a man requiring ethical behavior - say 'I have a program'?"

Poland's biggest problem is its political system, Kukiz reiterated the key motive of his presidential campaign.

"We will indicate problems and ways of solving them," he said. "The biggest problem for the time being is the system, a political system which enables traitors to sell Poland to foreign capital," he said.

At a press conference that followed the meeting with supporters, Kukiz said he would present people who will be on his movement's electoral lists by the end of July.

Kukiz said he would welcome all anti-establishment candidates from the latest presidential election, starting from far-right candidate Marian Kowalski and ending with Magdalena Ogorek, who was a candidate of left-wing party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD).

Local government members supporting Kukiz admit he has no experience in running an election campaign and would not listen when they tried to persuade him it was high time to give a more defined shape to the movement.
