The graphic from gazeta.pl shows the government's dilemma. Where to get a majority from?
If PSL – the Polish Peasants Party, jumps in with PiS, the largest party in what is left of the coalition, and they get the 15 others rumored to be lining up to join the government (mostly from the breakaway group of Andzrej Lepper’s Samoobrona which are calling themselves Ruch Ludowo Narodowy – the National Peasants Movement) then they are still short of six votes.
If they can't find those extra votes then an election in November is probable. It will take place on November 26 at the same time as the second round of the already planned local elections.
Polish Outlook has decided that, due to the fact that many in the present parliament would fail to get elected in a new election, a snap poll is unlikely.
But it’s a brave person to bet on anything in the weird and whacky world of Polish politics.
