Poland's prime minister, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, was keeping open the option Tuesday night of holding early elections in the autumn, two years ahead of schedule, after a small political party crucial to the stability of the conservative-nationalist minority coalition government reversed its decision to quit.

I seem to spend more time in the school next door voting than my daughter does learning.
What bothers me is the number of absentee voters. Those young folk working abroad who could make a difference.

Would anyone be able to post a website or article that gives a brief overview on what is currently going on with the elections? Lepper, etc...

I think so too. But will they ?

But will they ?

that goes for every election. I work at the polls in the elections here, mostly older people that vote, very few young people, so even if they weren't abroad would it make a difference? If they have a vote and they want to use it they will, will going home make them more inclined to vote?

As I have said on another thread. There are more older voters than younger ones. The thing is that all the younger people have to vote to make a difference. If they were here, under the present circumstances, I'm sure they would vote. Another problem with voting is that results can be predicted by region. Some people are so set in their ways and refuse to change. And the church does make a difference, whatever anyone says to the contrary.

update.

SLD were forced to push for an early election after all the shenanigans surrounding today's arrests.

The arrests concern members of parliament who were due to attend an inquiry tomorrow.

shenanigans

No-one I've spoken to will accept any responsibility for the twins.
That's probably quite normal. People vote, then pretend they never voted for who they did vote for.
But then again, many people don't bother to vote, then complain about the results.

What exactly do you mean?

It is not difficult to understand their motives!

What exactly do you mean?

All the Polish people I have met in the UK (okay, so they're here, not there) say they never voted for them or their party.

I remember when I was very small. Nobody admitted to voting for Thatcher. Most people hated her (despite her democratic election). These days, more and more people talk about how good she was.

I must admit to knowing very little about Polish politics.
Politics generally seem to be a much ignored area of life in conversation.

Funny, now few say they voted for them; if that was the case, how did they win? :)

The thing is that all the younger people have to vote to make a difference.

I wonder how difficult it is for a Polish person living abroad (in the UK or Germany, for example) to actually vote. I doubt the millions of young Poles working in the EU would come back to Poland to vote. It should be an easy process, but it's probably not.

I don't know the process, but they can vote from the country they are living in.

Will they bother ? I don't know.

In my opinion, the per cent of voting people in our country, is the bigest problem of our democracy. People with radical opinions goes to the pool ... and we have what we have. Normal people are disapointed after those all governments we had, and (what is sad) they stay home ...

And the main problem is not Kaczynski or Lepper or even Giertych, but tendency to stay home among succesful (in their life, bussines, carrer) people.
