Polish migration policy will depend on Poland’s new president: opinion

Poland’s upcoming presidential elections will have an enormous impact on the country’s stance towards migration, an especially important topic considering what is currently unfolding at the Greek-Turkish border.

The pictures of thousands of migrants, mostly Muslims, trying to break through into Europe’s frontier leads to several relevant questions.

For starters, for what reason is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan doing this?

Also, why did the European Union not fulfil the terms its 2016 deal with Ankara to give Turkey €6 billion precisely not to let refugees out of their territory?

This was officially about humanitarian help for refugees from Iraq and Syria, of course, but the majority of migrants Turkey has unleashed on Europe are coming from countries like Pakistan and Afghanistan.
