Brussels Concerned about Poland

EU Worried?

EU Worried?

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk and Foreign Minister Radosław Sikorski are hoping for a good result in the European elections. Brussels is anxiously watching Civic Platform (PO) and its rapidly falling electorate. Meanwhile, a good outcome for Donald Tusk will allow him and Radosław Sikorski to seriously fight for the most important positions in the European Union. Polish MEPs belong to different factions in the European parliament. The key ones are the Christian Democrats (EPP), the Socialists (S&D) and the Liberals (ALDE). PO and the Polish People’s Party (PSL) belong to the EPP, one of the largest and the most influential group. Everyone is aware that the Christian Democrats will suffer losses and Eurosceptics will be a more significant force. The question is whether these losses will be so large to gain an advantage over the Socialists. That would signify a political earthquake in Brussels.
