PR dla Zagranicy
The Sejm, the lower house of the Polish parliament, is to have its first ever rapper MP – Liroy, who received 20,000 votes.
Liroy (real name Piotr Liroy-Marzec) ran the election on the ticket of the Kukiz’15 political grouping, which is led by Paweł Kukiz, himself a rock musician.
“The same people are both specialists in air disasters and at the same time talk about abortion issues. It’s a tragedy,” Liroy told the TVN24 broadcaster, referring to mainstream politicians.
He said that Poland needs a dialogue with citizens and a change to the constitution.
The rapper gained the votes in Sunday's general election. (rg/rk)
