Polish opposition party to hold presidential primary?

31.10.2019 15:00
Poland’s largest opposition party, the Civic Platform, is considering holding a primary election to select a candidate for next year’s presidential race, according to reports.

Poland's PAP news agency reported that the party’s leadership gathered for a special meeting on Wednesday to weigh options ahead of the presidential campaign.

But for now the centre-right liberal Civic Platform has made no decision on how it should select its presidential contender, according to the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza.

For the time being, only one major opposition politician, Małgorzata Kidawa-Błońska, has come forward and declared she is ready to enter the presidential race.

Kidawa-Błońska won the most votes among the new set of Polish lawmakers that voters elected this month.

Weeks before the parliamentary election she was named as the choice for head of government by Poland’s largest opposition bloc.

The Civic Platform may decide to scrap its plan to hold a primary election if its former leader Donald Tusk decides to return to Polish politics and run for the presidency, the Gazeta Wyborcza daily reported on Thursday.

Tusk was the prime minister of Poland from 2007 to 2014, when he resigned to become president of the European Council, a key European Union leadership position.

His term in Brussels ends on November 30.

Meanwhile, the country’s ruling conservatives have reaffirmed their support for incumbent President Andrzej Duda, who is expected to seek reelection in May.

According to several recent surveys, Duda would beat Tusk in the second round of Poland’s 2020 presidential election if both of them entered the race.
