Katarzyna Lubnauer
Polish opposition parties Civic Platform (PO), Nowoczesna and Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) are close to concluding a deal as to a joint candidates list in this year's Warsaw mayoral elections, a source from SLD's top brass tells the daily Gazeta Wyborcza.
The leftist SLD will propose Sebastian Wierzbicki, the leader of the party's structures in the capital city, as a candidate for the deputy Warsaw mayor seat, the source adds.
The opposition needs to create a unified front in the November municipal elections, another SLD politician adds. However, negotiations between PO, SLD and Nowoczesna stalled somewhat after the latter elected Katarzyna Lubnauer as its new head in lieu of the party founder Ryszard Petru, a prominent SLD insider suggests.
The simmering conflict between Lubnauer and Petru makes the talks between the opposition parties more difficult, PO politicians tell the daily Rzeczpospolita. Lubnauer is seen as focusing more on Nowoczesna's individual run in the municipal elections and less on reaching an all opposition agreement, sources within PO believe.
