Tight finish predicted in Polish election


Campaigning in Poland’s General Election has ended, with Saturday to cool off before nerves crank up again on Sunday polling day.

The prime minister has been cruising the country in his Tuskmobile hanging on to a slender lead say the polls; if it is confirmed in votes he will have a coalition to build around his centre-right Civic Platform.

“The whole of Poland is about to become a stadium, so the most important thing at stake is security, and boosting Polish development with the tournament,” said Tusk.

Former Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski is in second place with 27 percent, eight points off Tusk, and he too will be obliged to deal with smaller parties if he wins. One of his final attacks was on Europe.

“We hear conflicting alarming information that the European Commission wants to water down sanctions suspending EU payments to member states that miss budgetary targets,” said Kaczynski.

Third in opinion polls is a new party formed from a Civic Platform splinter with 12.5 percent, Palikot, and two other parties scoop up another odd 20 percent between them.
