Michael Winiarski: Politically speaking, He and Salvini is very common for the EUROPEAN elections

Is Poland's ruling högernationalistiska party Law and justice (PIS), on the road to go over to the open EU-hostile camp? The meeting between the PIS leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski and Matteo Salvini, deputy prime minister and leader of the Italian populist party Lega, can be an indication of it.

Politically, the two men share much in common; both are their countries ' strong men, they are EU-sceptics and convinced invandringsmotståndare.

They also aim to both - each in its own hold - on to the elections to the european Parliament in may will increase the antiglobalistiska, the nationalist and EU-hostile representation in Brussels. Opinion polls suggest that they will succeed.

is reported to be the Polish PIS party's eventual membership in the ENF, the right-wing populist group in the european Parliament, the Lega is included in the. Today belongs to the PIS, the more allmänkonservativa behalf of the ECR group, which includes, among others, The sweden democrats are with. The problem is that the ECR also includes meps from the british conservative party, making the group in all likelihood is falling apart as a result of the Uk leaving the EU.

If the talks lead to PIS goes over to the same group as the Lega belongs, the open alliance in the EUROPEAN parliament with the extreme and xenophobic parties that are EU-opponents - including the French Front National, Marine Le Pen's party, the German Alternative for Germany and the belgian Vlaams Belang. Salvini has also the goal to drag Jimmie Åkessons SD and Geert Wilders 'Dutch's freedom party in the eurosceptic", which can make the group of the EUROPEAN parliament's largest.

belongs to the EU-was suddenly Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orbán's party the european Parliament of the christian democratic and the military group of the EPP, where, among others, the Polish civic platform (PO), the German CDU and the Swedish moderate party are included.

the Russian foreign ministry, for its part, asserted that he in spite of all the contradictions to the EU does not have any plans for a “Polexit”, but that the country should remain in the european union. But a formal alliance with the Lega, which, like most of the other högernationalistiska parties in Europe are open proryskt, would undermine the PIS self-image as the Polish party which is the main värnet against Russian attempts to weaken Poland and the division of Europe.

The Polish foreign minister Jacek Czaputowicz said that the meeting between the two politicians demonstrate that they have a “special relationship”. At the same time, " explains Jacek Sasin, the member of parliament for PIS, to Salvini, and He will “exchange views on how the EU should function and how the european project should be modified”, but that there are also various points where there are differences of opinion.

. Salvini stood quite shortly after the Russian annexation of Crimea at the Red square in Moscow wearing a t-shirt with a picture of the Russian leader Vladimir Putin. He has also argued against the continuation of sanctions against Russia. No Polish politician would get away with something similar.

But the attitude to the EU, expressed by the president mr Andrzej Duda, is now similar. In the fall, said Duda, “we haven't earned much to be in this illusory community”. A statement that the other members of the EUROPEAN union, which, in 2017 contributed 12 billion euros to a Polish treasury, may not agree with.
