The first two places in Łódź will also belong to the politicians of Poland 2050, and the third place will be taken by the Polish Coalition.
Indecisive and absent
MP Marek Sawicki (KP-PSL) is not sure of the first place on the list in the Siedlce constituency. As for my district, I don’t know yet. Four years ago, my “one” was decided at the last meeting of the NKW just before registering the lists, Sawicki said in an interview with PAP.
The agency also learned that the decision to start in elections Tomasz Zimoch, MP, has not taken up yet. It will be presented in the coming days.
PAP also learned that MEP Adam Jarubas, who is the head of the PSL electoral staff, will not be on the lists. Former PSL spokesman Jakub Stefaniak is to appear on the list, but it is not known from which district he will start.
PAP information also shows that it is not yet known about the second place in Lublin, because the current MEP, Krzysztof Hetman, who would take this place, has not yet decided whether he will run for the national parliament. – At the moment there is a discussion going on – one of the KP-PSL deputies stressed in an interview with PAP.
MP Jan Łopata, who previously ran from the Lublin district, will also be absent from the Third Way lists. – My name will not be on the electoral rolls. I would like to thank my colleagues and all voters for their cooperation, but I am resigning from running in this election, Łopata told PAP. When asked about the reasons for this decision, the politician replied “that there comes a time and you have to know when to leave the stage undefeated”. – I recognize that the time has come perhaps for younger colleagues with a different outlook, there is nothing mysterious here, just such a moment comes – he emphasized member of the Polish People’s Party.
Work on the final shape of the Third Way lists is still ongoing. Although most of the places have been fixed, some of them may still be modified, some elements of the lists are still being refined and their final version should wait until the moment of registration.
