Interesting game in Włocławek

Although the Civic Coalition won the city council elections in Włocławek with 33.28 percent of the votes, it cannot count on a stable majority. Nine seats means only one more from the Left and three more from Law and Justice. Interestingly, two former excellent basketball players were elected to the city council from the Left's lists. The legend of Włocławek basketball, Igor Griszczuk, and former Polish representative and Anwil player, Szymon Szewczyk.

However, it is not known whether the Civic Coalition will be able to reach an agreement with the Left regarding future cooperation, especially since the candidates of both parties are fighting for the presidency in the second round. On Sunday, leftist senator Krzysztof Kukucki turned out to be better than the incumbent president, Marek Wojtkowski from the Civic Coalition. Kukucki received 41.40 and Wojtowski 29.88 percent of the votes.
