In an interview with German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Kaczyński said: “Merkel would be best for us. Especially now, when it turns out that [Martin] Schulz is running against her,” Kaczyński said.
Schulz, until recently the head of the European Parliament, announced in late January that he would lead the ticket for the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD) in the elections set to be held on 24 September.
Merkel will be meeting Kaczyński in Warsaw on Tuesday. (rg/pk)
