“Foreign policy is not part of the campaigning… because many leaders, particularly the leaders of Law and Justice, supported the coup d’état in Kiev, and feeling the mood of the people now, the parties do not want to remind of polish political elites behaved during the events of Euromaidan in Ukraine,” Mateusz Piskorski, who is also the head of the European Center for Geopolitical Analysis, said.
In February 2014, weeks of mass protests in Ukraine caused by then-president Viktor Yanukovych's decision not to sign an EU association agreement, ended in a government coup.
Polish pro-EU policy will be maintained even if the Eurosceptic Law and Justice party wins the parliamentary elections in the country on Sunday, the head of the Polish party Zmiana told Sputnik.
"I think that behind the eurosceptic rhetoric that the Law and Justice uses during the campaigning, it will not change the politics of Poland toward Brussels if they win the elections," Mateusz Piskorski, who is also the head of the European Center for Geopolitical Analysis, said.
The Civic Platform party led by Prime Minister Ewa Kopacz wants the country to have a strong position within the European Union and supports greater NATO presence on its territory. The Law and Justice party urges the European Union to pay more attention to Poland's national interests.
