This week, Notes from Poland editor-at-large Stanley Bill talks to Ben Stanley, a political scientist at SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Warsaw, about the upcoming presidential elections.
They discuss the prospects of the two front runners, the controversies over “LGBT ideology”, Donald Trump’s apparent intervention, media bias, and the minor candidates of the left and far right.
Also check out our previous episode on the earlier campaign for a May 10 election, which did not take place due to COVID-19, and on tensions within PiS’s ruling coalition.
