Get to know the details!
Jarosław Kaczyński convinced Andrzej Duda to his idea
Last Monday, the PiS Political Committee met at the headquarters of the Law and Justice party at Nowogrodzka Street in Warsaw. One of the main topics discussed was the change of the date of the local government elections, which, according to the current election calendar, should take place next autumn.
An important politician of the government camp in a conversation with Gazeta Wyborcza indicated that an agreement was reached on this matter and it was decided that the extension of the local government's current term of office would not involve changes to the electoral law.
In an interview with the RMF, the deputy head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration, Paweł Szafernaker, stated that the president was in favor of local elections to be held as soon as possible, i.e. not later than six months from their original date.
“Just so that no one would say that they were in any way, as you already said today, that anyone is messing with anything,” said Szafernaker.
When the local elections
According to Paweł Szafernaker, the local elections would be held on two possible dates. The first one would fall on April 7, 2024, and the second one a week later – on April 14. The final decision on this issue has not yet been made.
Law and Justice argues the need to transfer local government elections so that the election campaigns to the local government and parliament do not conflict with each other. According to the opposition, the purpose of this change is completely different. In their opinion, PiS is afraid of losing in local elections, which could affect the chances of the current government in elections to the Sejm and Senate.
It is worth recalling that European elections are scheduled for the turn of May and June 2024.
