On Friday, the co-chairman of the New Left, Włodzimierz Czarzasty, presented the lists of his candidates to the Sejm and Senate. In addition to the current parliamentarians, the lists include, among others: the leader of the Citizens of the Republic of Poland, Paweł Kasprzak, and activist Bożena Przyłuska.
“Unanimously, on the basis of a complete consensus, we accepted our candidates to the Sejm and the Senate. Our partners: Together, Unia Pracy, PPS and SDPL will also accept these letters, because we have equal rights and we respect each other – said Czarzasty. Co-chairman Robert Biedroń noted that the lists of “the left are parity and diverse” and there will be people on them who meet the expectations of young people and minorities.
