Poland will hold democratic presidential elections despite opposition attempts to try and delay them, said the leaders of Poland’s United Right coalition, Jarosław Kaczyński, Jarosław Gowin and Zbigniew Ziobro, during a joint press conference.
The leaders of the three parties that make up the ruling block Law and Justice (PiS) criticized the opposition for reneging on the agreement reached at a roundtable discussion last week. All parties agreed there on the changes in the legislation going through parliament enabling the election to take place through a mix of postal and in-person polling station ballots.
They regard the behavior of the opposition as an attack on the constitutional order.
PiS leader Jarosław Kaczyński declared that “the election will be held, and all attempts to block it will be resisted by utilizing the power invested in the state to ensure that the law of the land is respected.”
