MOSCOW (Sputnik), Daria Chernyshova – On Monday, the Polish National Electoral Commission declared the September 6 vote to be invalid after only 7.8-percent of the electorate turned out to vote, which failed to pass the 50-percent plus one vote minimum threshold.
"It was a waste of our time, of our effort and it was much greater than $22 million," Janusz Korwin-Mikke said.
Korwin-Mikke said the right-wing Coalition for the Restoration of Freedom and Hope to the Republic (KORWiN) party that he heads was successful in boycotting the plebiscite.
"We wanted to boycott this referendum, and this boycott was successful – only seven percent voted," Korwin-Mikke stressed.
He underlined that the referendum cost the ruling Civic Platform party its popularity, while the Korwin party continues to gain support.
