Poland’s Conservatives are to call for parliament to be dissolved. It is the clearest sign yet that the party wants early elections in a bid for an absolutemajority.

Speaking at a Law and Justice party convention leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski called on the liberal Civic Platform party to support dissolution, adding he wanted the election concluded ahead of the Pope’s end-of May visit. He explained his decision by saying the Conservative’s two allies in parliament had “disappointed”, and shown “astonishing attitudes”. When conflicts could not be solved in the chamber he said, the citizens should solve them. Analysts are unsure a fresh election so soon after last year’s poll will result in anything other than another hung parliament, and more attempts at coalition-building.
