Polish Referendum

There is an election in Poland on Sunday. After last Sunday’s debacle in Germany, one hesitates to quote forecasts, but the right is apparently heading for a victory.
The latest opinion polls tip Civic Platform to win the general elections by 32 percent with Law and Justice picking up 27 percent and the pair planning to form a powerful new coalition that will be less friendly toward the euro and the EU Constitution than the present left-wing government (SLD).
As the largest new EU member, Poland were always likely to be a prickly addition. The new government could be a step further in such a direction.
"We don't see any benefits in adopting the euro. Euro adoption would lead to lower exports, lower national income and higher unemployment", Law and Justice leader Jaroslaw Kaczynksi told Polish news agency PAP on Monday.
A coalition member that is against the Euro and this is a government that is thinking about putting the topic of Euro membership to the people.
Centre-right group Civic Platform (PO) and the eurosceptic Law and Justice party (PiS) both came out in favour of a referendum on the single currency in the Polish press on Monday (19 September), with Law and Justice proposing a date toward the end of the parliament's next four year-long session.
We look forward to Poland throwing more sand in the works of the federast’s plans.
