Local elections in Poland: PiS and opposition holds

Poland will hold local elections on October 21 with a second round on November 4, according to a document published on Tuesday on the website of the Journal of Laws. The vote could give the Law and Justice (PiS) party, which rules nationally and enjoys strong public support but is in a minority in most regional administrations, a stronger foothold in local government. That would the socially conservative but economically left-leaning party more say in how public funds are spent ahead of next year's general election. According to the latest poll by IBRiS pollster, PiS could secure a majority in 12 out of Poland's 16 regional legislatures.

 

"I have signed a decree regarding the date of local elections. On the 21 October, Polish people who will run the local governments; may the starting campaign be a fair race of best proposals for Poles" - Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wrote on Twitter.

Thanks sis! The polls in the country overall favour PiS(s), however the opposition is leading in Warsaw, Kraków, Gdańsk, Poznań and most other major cities. The turnout might be higher than usual which is good news for the Civic Coalition, and therefore for people who support the EU and liberals in Poland.

How's Piotr Krzystek? PiSS flopping :clap3: Civic Platform's Wikipedia page says they're against gay marriage and abortion though?

Incubent President of Szczecin, former member of Civic Platform, a moderate.

 

Civic Platform have been supportive of same-sex registered partnerships since 2015. They historically indeed were against gay marriage and abortion, however nowadays they mostly either purged or moved to the back most of its conservative and anti-LGBT, anti-abortion members. .Modern are fully supportive of gay rights and one of their openly gay members, Paweł Rabiej is Rafał Trzaskowski's candidate for Warsaw vice-mayor.

It's the ruling party that's self-destructive with their hatred, opposition is weak and dumb as **** (still better than the ruling party, tho, they don't make me vomit). I'm happy for Zdanowska, Łódź is my uni city and it has really grown in the few past years. A lot of things were done here in Łódź ever since I moved in here. Sure the city still reminds of Detroit but you won't fix like 50 years of negligence in a few years.

And Trzaskowski pledged to support Warsaw Pride!

 

The ruling party won the election, and made some gains, however the opposition didn’t lose the most important seats and kept their support so we’re down for celebration.

Isn't there already other mayor heavily supporting Pride events?

It was some big city from western Poland- Poznan, methinks.

 

Anyway, looks like everyone won and everyone lost a the same time. But it's the ruling party that lost the the most of steam.

Guess, we have to wait a see how the trends will look like in the fortcoming months
