Polish president Andrzej Duda has begun post-election consultations about new government with the winner of the elections, Law and Justice, although it seems that oposition Civic coalition has a higher chance of forming a government. Our deputy director Viktor Daněk commented on the post-election negotiations and future of Poland in an interview with RTVS.
"When it comes to size, Poland is the biggest country of the Visegrád Group, and under the leadership of Donald Tusk the polish government will undoubtfully have an ambition to be an informal leader of the whole broader region of the eastern wing of the European union. Donald Tusk, thanks to his experiences as a prime minister and a leader of the EU, will definitely aim to be a significant leader and an informal speaker of the whole Group, which will make observing the inner dynamic of the Visegrád Group very interesting."
