Poland’s ruling conservatives are hoping to suspend a parliamentary session today in a bid to block an opposition motion calling for snap elections. The opposition would like to see the House’s term cut short three years ahead of schedule. If the legislature is put on hold today it would stay on ice until the 17th of this month – that could give the country’s embattled prime minister enough time to rebuild a majority coalition. Faced with poor popularity ratings Jaroslaw Kaczynski is loathed to go to the polls. He is wooing the leftist Self Defence Party once again – hoping they will rejoin forces. The prime minister had ditched Self Defence last month after it demanded more spending for the 2007 budget and opposed plans to send more troops to Afghanistan.
