Who will be the next President of Poland?

You don't think Tusk? He is planning to run, you know.

No he's not. Tusk has hardly made a secret of the fact that he wants the Presidency to be along the Italian or German model - a figurehead. The selection of Komorowski confirms this - that it's a job for someone reliable, stable and unemotional.

Here is proof.

"Poland PM Tusk Considers Running for President"

novinite.com/view_news.php?id=115167

"Consider" is diplomatic way of saying he is going to run. He has to appear as though he's "mourning."

Proof? One ambassador to Russia doesn't mean a damn thing. Komorowski was chosen by PO members - Tusk isn't going to risk upsetting the party over something like this, unless Komorowski shows signs of actually losing the election, which is unlikely.

Of course it's possible, but why would he run for a lame duck office when the power is in the hands of the PM?

When Kaczynski was around, the power was not in Tusk's hands. But it is now:

And Tusk has very open plans to reform the Constitution and bring in a German or Italian model where the Prime Minister is the undisputed top dog. I don't think it's much of a secret that PO were waiting until Kaczynski lost the 2010 election in order to bring these reforms forward.

Of course the power is in his hands at the moment - his party controls the Government and the Presidency. But that's what you get when you win most seats in an election.

That is called "Hitler" and "Il Duce." And actually, should he become prime minister, he will be lapdog to the undisputed "top dog" Putin. He fierce pro-Russia stance is well known:

en.rian.ru/analysis/20071123/89337291.html

"With Kaczynski now dead and Acting President Bronislaw Komorowski, a close Tusk ally, tipped to win the presidency, analysts say efforts to repair economic and political ties between Moscow and Warsaw may accelerate."

Well, I think Tusk is doing a good thing on that one but a caveat must be issued. What will happen when they are caught between a rock and a hard place (US and Russia)? NATO is their first obligation on paper but what stand will a future Polish President take on, let's say, Sevastopol which throws Ukraine into the mix? All the good work can be undone in an instant.

Hold your horses. Vothes have not been cast yet.

A lot of voting is irrational (see GW Bush) , or done at the spur of the moment (see Obama). The same may happen in Poland. For now the media are pretty quiet about the possibility of foul play in the accident but my bet is that it will start on Monday. All that is really needed is a few thousand very vocal Olga's, a few unexplained mysteries and a gaffe by a leftist politician or two and Poles are likely to further honor LK by voting for his party. There does not need to be an overwhelming support for PiS, just enough to squeeze through. With Tusks party having lost a very handsome percentage (11%) of support things may be pretty interesting.

I was thinking hypothetically, Dariusz. I only have one horse ;)

OK, fair enough.
I was also speaking about multiple horses hypothetically ;)

Aha, we have space to disagree but not Spaces ;) ;)

Komorowski, what a boring looking man.

apparently your horizons are limited so you stay in your Space. I'll gladly research Spaces :)

Komorowski, what a boring looking man.

He ain't getting my vote for sure. I'm kinda tempted to vote PiS if they put forth a candidate.

OK, be sure to publish your research on Spaces ;)

JK? LOL

Merged:

Wasserman president of Krakow?!?

Whatever you do just avoid Duda. Man failed. Let some other politician try.
