It is a measure of Poland’s weight on the European stage that its October 25 parliamentary elections are drawing attention from Washington and London to Berlin and Moscow. During our September Monthly Meeting experts discussed the current political situation in Poland and answered key questions a:
Could the changing political mood signal a return to power of Duda’s conservative Law and Justice Party? Did Polish voters in the Presidential elections sent a strong signal that they are unhappy with the country’s direction? Will the results of the Parliamentary elections affect Poland’s international position? How will the October elections impact the polish economy? And finally, who is going to rule the country the next four years?
