This one’s called What won’t they do to get in the government?.
Q: What is Jarolsaw Kalinowski (standing), of the Polish Peasant’s Party (PSL), up to in this photo? And should his wife know?
Answers on a postcard to the usual address.
Lawmakers (snigger!) have been busy recently. The minority government wanted to dissolve parliament. Several parties, staring down the barrel of another election and a reduction in the number of their MPs, decided that they would rather not this time, thank you.
Another frenzy of coalition flirting is going on at the moment (yawn!). Will PiS go with Selfdefense, or maybe even Civic Platform?
So far, nobody seems particularly interested in making a coalition with the Polish Peasants Party, which has 35 members in parliament, got seven percent of the vote in the last election. Jaroslaw Kalinowski was their candidate in the presidential election, when he got a massive 1.8% of the vote. At one time, he was vice premier in the previous ex-communist SLD government.
So it’s not surprising that the present PiS government hasn’t given him a call.
But what do you think he would do to get in power?
