Poland's governing party Law and Justice (PiS) has prepared amendments to the nation's local government elections law, party leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski reportedly told party MPs.
Changes to the law need to be in place one year ahead of the November 2018 election deadline. A lot depends on the final outcome of the ongoing conflict over judicial reform, PiS caucus leader Ryszard Terlecki said.
President Andrzej Duda could submit his own amendments to the party plan, as happened with the courts, some party insiders worry. PiS will likely resign from an earlier proposal to bank candidacies from long-term incumbents, one insider says.
PiS is mulling a ban on running for two posts at once. The party is very likely to reverse a prior move to single-seat districts for some councils, Senate Speaker Stanislaw Karczewski indicated.
