Opposition divided
October 20, 2017   
Article's tools:

Poland's opposition parties seem rather unwilling to form strategic alliances before the country's 2018 local elections. The biggest opposition groupings Civic Platform (PO) and Nowoczesna have been in talks, but will not announce joint candidate lists any time soon, PO's deputy Jan Grabiec comments for the daily Dziennik Gazeta Prawna.
PO is also considering a broad coalition with Nowoczesna, Polish Peoples Party (PSL) and the non-partisan local activists' movement Bezpartyjni Samorzadowcy, a source in PO tells the daily.
However, Bezpartyjni's spokesperson expresses skepticism towards the idea, and a PSL deputy claims his formation will run under its own banners.
The opposition stands a chance of beatingLaw and Justice (PiS) in the local elections only if it unifies, the more so that PiS might attempt to raise the electoral threshold at regional councils, a PO politician says.
