ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the political condition in Poland, with emphasis on the October 2005 presidential election. Poland's general election in September 2005 saw the incumbent administration, led by the Social Democrats (SLD), decisively voted out of office, while the presidential election resulted in favor of Lech Kaczynski with 54% of votes in runoff. The Law and Justice party (PiS), known to be suspicious of economic liberalism, emerged from the poll as the dominant party in the parliament.
