Poland’s Peasants Party (PSL) has derailed the country’s coalition of pro-European opposition parties. It withdrew from the group after suffering a major loss in last week’s European Parliament ballot.
This is good news for the ruling Law & Justice (PiS) party, which won the European Union ballot with a record 45% support.
As reported by Bloomberg, Peasants leader Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz said his party’s more conservative voters didn’t like the fact that leftist groups had joined the coalition.
“We’ve decided to build our own group for the general election,” Kosiniak-Kamysz said. “We invite everyone who shares our values to join us.”
Parliamentary elections in Poland are not expected before November 2019.
