ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the politics and government of Poland. Despite the government's intention to remain in power until an autumn poll, mounting opposition suggests that an election will be held in the first half of 2005. Following the formation of a new centrist political faction, the political left is at risk of further fragmentation. However, although the new grouping may provide a viable alternative to the current Democratic Left Alliance government, our core scenario remains an election victory for a centre-right alliance of the Civic Platform and Law and Justice parties.
