Polish president Andrzej Duda may veto changes to the electoral law for the European Parliament elections authored by the ruling party Law and Justice (PiS) and recently approved by the lower house, the daily Gazeta Wyborcza wrote citing an anonymous source from the presidential millieu.
Duda knew nothing of the planned changes, designed to benefit PiS by creating constituencies with at least three mandates, the source claimed.
Anti-establishment movement Kukiz'15, seen as a presidential ally, has reportedly talked to Duda about a possible veto amid fears that the new rules will marginalize smaller groupings, the daily said of own unofficial information.
President might procrastinate with signing the new law but will finally do it as he is unwilling to risk a conflict with the ruling party, the more so that PiS leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski recently pointed to Duda as PiS's presidential candidate in 2020, an anonymous PiS politician said.
