A well-known writer, a famous ski activist – we know more and more about who will run for parliament. There are new names, and some well-known politicians also surprise, because they will start from different districts than before.
Writer Jacek Dehnel will close the parliamentary list of the Left in Warsaw. The question is, what does the poet want to do in the Sejm? – First of all, the law on civil partnerships, and preferably on marriage equality and protection against hate speech of LGBT people, and the act on insurance for artists – replies Dehnel.
The legendary ski jumping coach also has his plans. Apoloniusz Tajner will start from the lists of the Civic Coalition in the Bielsko district. – I believe that women’s rights have been severely violated. I think the constitution is being torn. He believes that the separation of powers in Poland is at risk – enumerates the former president of the Polish Ski Association.
In the coming days, there may be more surprises, because the parties are finalizing their lists of candidates. There is not much time and in just over two weeks the deadline for submitting notifications on the establishment of electoral committees to the National Electoral Commission will expire, and until September 6, at 4 p.m., all committees have time to submit lists of candidates for deputies and senators. That’s why collections of signatures for letters across the country are in full swing. From now on, every photo and every shaken hand is worth its weight in political gold.
In Krakow, PSL talked about the proposal of a tax dependent on the number of children – this is the idea of the Third Way to improve the demographic situation of Poland. – The campaign is in full swing. Poles expect specifics, not substitute topics – emphasizes Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, leader of the Polish People’s Party.
Power is also seen between people, but the atmosphere of success prevails at meetings. – We were able to do what others said that it could not be done – said Elżbieta Witek, Speaker of the Sejm from Law and Justice.
The left shows its cards in Pomerania
The left, in turn, announces a fight to improve the financial situation of pensioners and reveals its cards in Pomerania. So the latest rumors are confirmed that Agnieszka Dziemianowicz-Bąk, MP from Wrocław, will open the list of the Left in the Gdynia-Słupsk constituency, and MP Katarzyna Kotula from Szczecin will open the list in Gdańsk. “When we say all hands on deck, that’s what we mean,” emphasizes Dziemianowicz-Bąk. – We are going to change Poland, we are actually going to build Poland from scratch – emphasizes Kotula.
Dziemianowicz-Bąk in his district will face, among others, Barbara Nowacka, Marek Biernacki, Stanisław Tyszka and probably Marcin Horała. Katarzyna Kotula in Gdańsk will compete with Agnieszka Pomaska, Agnieszka Buczyńska, Michał Urbaniak and probably with Jarosław Sellin, although PiS has not yet revealed its “ones”.
The Civic Coalition will announce detailed lists on Wednesday. – Next week, after the letter is approved, we roll up our sleeves, collect signatures and move forward – says MP Arkadiusz Marchewka from the Civic Coalition.
Also next week, the details of the Senate pact are to be known, Robert Biedroń talks about Thursday. This is an agreement between the opposition forces, thanks to which the opposition will nominate one common candidate for the Senate in single-mandate constituencies.
