Poland suspends parliament’s session until just after election on October 13

WARSAW: Poland’s parliament will be suspended at the close of business on Wednesday until after an election on October 13, its speaker said, prompting opposition lawmakers to accuse the right-wing government of secretly plotting to push through extra bills.
The opposition fears PiS, which they and the European Union accuse of undermining the rule of law, will use that small window after the election to push through additional bills. PiS, which is tipped to win the election, denies any such intention.
“We have a one-day session today, we announce a break and we continue (this session) on October 15 and 16. This is nothing extraordinary,” said the speaker of the lower house, Elzbieta Witek, a PiS lawmaker. (REUTERS)
