Left-wing parties to contest elections as coalition

Three Polish left-wing parties that are struggling in the opinion polls Saturday decided to run in October's parliamentary elections as a coalition.

Recent opinion polls have shown that the opposition Democratic Left Alliance (SLD), Your Movement and the Green Party could all fail to secure the minimum of five percent of votes needed by an individual party to make it into the lower house.

Under Poland's election rules, a coalition needs at least eight percent support to have deputies in parliament.

SLD chief Leszek Miller told journalists shortly before a meeting of his party's national council Saturday that the decision about whether to form a coalition was one of the most important facing his party.
