Polish parliamentary election Sunday

In my preview of September’s elections, I noted that this will be the first time that Poland has had parliamentary and presidential elections in such close succession. The parliamentary elections are on September 25, but the presidential elections have lost most of their suspense due to the dropping out of one of the main contenders.

MarekNYC at EuroTrib has the details, including a thorough overview of the various parties contesting the parliamentary elections and recent polling figures for both elections. In the comments he adds a nice short overview of past elections.

(And I have to say that I am glad that I don’t have a vote in this election. Reading the party descriptions, I think I would be very hard pressed to find anyone to vote for among those who will clear the 5% threshold!)
