Ruling party wants to change the election rules

Governing party Law and Justice (PiS) could seek to increase the number of voting districts for the 2019 parliamentary elections, perhaps to 100, the daily Rzeczpospolita claimed from inside sources. Such a move would benefit major parties and would have given PiS another 34 seats in the last election.
President Andrzej Duda told leaders from across the political spectrum that he would oppose changes to the parliamentary election law that might lead to a two-party system.
Any move by PiS to alter the electoral law would likely press more of the opposition into a joint election list, representatives of opposition parties have indicated. Opposition parties Civic Platform (PO) and Nowoczesna already have a coalition in the works. Leftist opposition party Democratic Left Alliance (SLD), currently outside of parliament, would likely join on any change in the electoral law, the party leader has said.
