On Wednesday, August 9, in “Morning Conversation” in RMF FM, Katarzyna Pełczyńska-Nałęcz spoke about the plans of the Third Way for the parliamentary elections. The chief of staff of Poland 2050 revealed who will get a first in Warsaw.
Contrary to the types of some commentators, Szymon Hołownia will not run in the upcoming elections from the Warsaw list. – One will be Michał Kobosko – announced the head of the Polish 2050 election staff, Katarzyna Pełczyńska-Nałęcz. – It is no secret where Szymon Hołownia will start. It is simply the place where it comes from – Białystok – she added.
The Third Way wants candidates from their constituencies
The RMF FM interlocutor emphasized that her party insisted that individual candidates start from the places they are associated with. – This is the approach of Szymon Hołownia. It is also important to understand that large cities are important, but the balance of these choices will be decided in medium-sized, medium-sized and medium-small cities, she pointed out.
The chief of staff admitted that the ones in Krakow and other large cities are already selected, but the announcement of the names will have to wait a bit. She herself made the decision to withdraw from the run and focus on the “staff, campaign process”, and not on herself. She also announced the announcement of a coalition agreement between the parties of Szymon Hołownia and Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz.
According to Pełczyńska-Nałęcz, the third place in the upcoming elections will be crucial for the future balance of power in the Sejm. – It depends on whether PiS will stay with the Confederation or whether we will remove them (…). Really the third force is the most important. And the Third Way, I hope, she said.
