PiS looking for a steady partner

For six months now the national conservative party Law and Justice (PiS) has been governing the country with a varying majority and constantly threatening to call new elections. On April 6, its motion for new elections failed in the Polish parliament. As a result, the PiS is now looking for a steady partner. In an interview with Jaroslaw Murawski, political scientist Wawrzyniec Konarski rules out the possibility of a coalition between the PiS and the liberal right-wing Civic Platform (PO), but says a coalition with the populist right-wing Samoobrona (Self-defence) party would be feasible. Konarski predicts: "If the PiS and Samoobrona are not successful together, there will be new elections this autumn. The PO needs six months to get ready for elections and win them."
