NowoczesnaPL, a centre-right economically liberal party formed in the summer, will consider cooperating with Law and Justice (PiS) if the main opposition grouping won October’s general elections.

The party’s founder and leader, economist Ryszard Petru, spoke to Jo Harper at the Krynica economic forum in southern Poland.
The party, which is backed by several leading economists and has set out an orthodox economically liberal platform ahead of the country’s 25 October elections, is polling at 1-2 percent, below the five percent threshold needed to enter the Sejm, or parliamentary lower house.
NowoczesnaPL said in June it could work with ruling Civic Platform (PO), which is currently poling around 15 percent less than PiS’s 38 percent in opinion polls.
