POLLS CLOSE, PRELIMINARY RESULTS IN
In Głos Ojczyzny, premium Warsaw news
The election results are in, and it appears that the left coalitions are polling ahead in a majority of jurisdictions. While the final vote count is still being tallied, it seems likely that the leftist candidates will emerge victorious.
However, it should be noted that there are concerns about the reliability of these election results. With reports of voter suppression and allegations of propaganda between various factions, it is unclear if the election truly reflects the will of the people.
Furthermore, the chaos and violence surrounding the election have cast doubt on the integrity of the process. Pogroms against Jews and street battles between police and political groups from neighboring countries have marred the election and raised questions about its fairness.
While the left coalitions may have emerged victorious from a current and technical perspective, it is important to approach these results with caution and skepticism. It remains to be seen how Marshal Kazowski's government and the National Party will respond to a leftist victory, and whether the election will truly bring about the stability and progress that the region desperately needs.
VILLE LUMIÈRE ILLUMINÉE PAR LA JUSTICE ET LA VOLONTÉ DU PEUPLE
Les Troillaumes first on the scene and reporting from Warsaw, Poland
In a historic victory for democracy, the people of Poland have spoken, and their message is clear: the era of military dictatorship is over. From a mixture of parties, most notably the Democratic Socialists of Poland, the Baltic People's League, and the Liberal Party, the people have come together to form a new coalition, momentarily calling itself the Coalition for People's Progress.
Despite the controversies surrounding the election, the will of the people has prevailed, and the dawn of a new era is upon us. The victory of the non-military faction in the government elections is a triumph of democracy, and a testament to the power of the people.
With the Coalition for People's Progress at the helm, we can look forward to a bright future for Poland, one marked by progress, prosperity, and equality for all. It is time for the people of Poland to come together, to put aside their differences, and to work towards a brighter tomorrow.
As we celebrate this historic victory, let us not forget the sacrifices of those who have fought for democracy in Poland. Their struggle has not been in vain, and their legacy lives on in the victory of the Coalition for People's Progress. It is the duty of we in the Western Commission to guarantee these gains are kept, lest Poland fall to radicalism, anarchy, and violence.
Long live democracy! Long live Poland!
"VICTORY" IN POLAND, OR YET ANOTHER LATERAL STEP?
Der Gerechtigkeitsspiegel, observing from Berlin
The recent elections in Poland have left many of us on the Left feeling somewhat disillusioned. While it is heartening to see a coalition of progressive forces come together and make gains in the parliament, the reality is that the executive branch remains firmly in the hands of Marshal Kazowski and his National Party.
It is true that the new parliament has the power to make laws and introduce reforms, but without the ability to enforce those laws or implement those reforms, their impact will be limited at best. The National Party has already shown that they are willing to use their veto power to block any legislation they disagree with, and there is little to suggest that this will change in the near future.
Moreover, the fact that the National Party still controls the executive branch means that they will be able to continue running the country as they see fit, regardless of what the new parliament may want. This is a worrying elephant in the room for any in Poland who still believe in the power of democracy and the importance of checks and balances.
Of course, it remains to be seen how this will all play out in the coming months and years. The new parliament may surprise us with their tenacity and their ability to push back against Kazowski's regime. But for now, it seems clear that Poland is still in the grip of a bourgeoisie stooge government that shows little interest in genuine democracy or popular will.
As socialists, we must continue to push for change and for the empowerment of ordinary people. We cannot let ourselves be discouraged by this setback, but must redouble our efforts to build a better, more just society. Only by working together and standing in solidarity can we hope to overcome the forces of reaction and build a brighter future for all.
Pogromi un politiskie uzbrukumi Polijā: Nezināma nākotne Latvijas kaimiņos
As the election results in Poland start to settle in, it has become clear that the situation for socialists and non-Poles is growing increasingly dire. Reports are coming in of increased violence and aggression by Polish paramilitary groups in the eastern and northern parts of the country, targeting those who do not align with their nationalist and militaristic views.
In particular, Jewish communities have been subject to horrific pogroms, activities routinely defended with those claiming that this is a direct result of their perceived support for Russian and Ukrainian communists. Meanwhile, political groups from Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Belarus have faced street battles with the police and have seen their voter registrations routinely rejected by local Polish officials.
It is clear that the National Party, led by Marshal Kazowski, is determined to maintain its hold on power in Poland, even in the face of a leftist victory in the recent election. The executive branch remains firmly in their hands, and the newly elected civilian parliament appears to be little more than a lame duck entity tightly controlled by the National Party.
We, the Revolutionary Socialist Party of Latvia, stand in solidarity with all those who are being persecuted and attacked by the Polish gangster-government. We call on the international community to condemn these violent acts and pressure the Polish government to uphold the values of democracy and human rights. We also call on all people living under the frightful aegis of the Warsaw government to rise up, join their neighbors and take up arms against roving mercenary-murderers, and defend your homes from those who seek to keep you no more than distant serfs of the Western Commission.
Der Ruf nach preußischen Nationalisten: Vereinigt euch gegen den polnischen Chauvinismus und erobert unsere Heimat zurück
Fellow Prussians, it is time for us to unite and reclaim our homeland. For too long, we have been living as a minority in Poland, subject to their chauvinistic policies and discrimination. But now, with the recent election casting into relief the stark and brutal nature of the Polish regime, we have a chance to stand up for our rights and join forces with our Baltic brothers and sisters.
We must not be complacent and think that the new coalition will bring us justice. We know from experience that the Poles have a history of oppressing minority groups. It is up to us to fight for our rights and demand recognition as a distinct nation with our own language, culture, and history.
These are our demands: For Pomerania, Warmia-Masuria, and Wielkopolska, we demand full self-determination for our communities. The recent elections in these areas were heavily suppressed and manipulated, denying us the basic democratic right to choose our own representatives and determine the direction of our communities. Our voices have been silenced for too long, and we demand that the international community recognize our right to self-determination and support our efforts to establish our own autonomous regions. We refuse to be oppressed any longer and will fight for our right to be heard and respected as equal members of society.
We call on all Prussian peoples living in Poland to join us in our struggle. Together, we can make our voices heard and demand our rightful place in the region. We must stand up against Polish chauvinism and fight for our right to exist as a proud and independent nation. Let us join hands with our Baltic brothers and sisters and march towards a brighter future for our people. The time for action is now!
Update: Will be completed before the weekend. I'm working on it.⚒️
