How the far-right could swing Poland’s election | Times Reports



Polish voters will elect a new parliament on October 15. The Times traveled to Opole in southern Poland to meet Krzysztof Bosak, the leader of the Konfederacja party who proposes a different kind of Polish politics.

Holding nine percent of the vote, in just five years Konfederacja has grown from an anti-system force on the fringes of Polish politics into the likely kingmaker.

Forming a coalition with either side would change the balance of power in this new parliament. Konfederacja is an exotic alliance of smaller anti-system parties, with chauvinist and xenophobic sentiments lurking in the background. It enjoys particularly high levels of support among younger men living in smaller and rural areas. 41-year-old Krzysztof Bosak skillfully avoids controversies around his movement, distancing himself from the more radical views of some of the party members.
