Kaczyński as Honorary Cracovian?
It seems that at least in Krakow, the two major opposing parties in the Polish government, Civic Platform (PO) and Law and Justice (PiS), are playing nice. PiS has asked for President Lech Kaczyński to be granted an honorary citizenship in the city of Krakow, and Cracovian Mayor Jacek Majchrowski is believed to support the notion.
According to PO MPs in Krakow, the mayor of Krakow and PiS are trying to “strike a political deal,” which would grant more support for Mayor Majchrowski, a member of PO, from the opposition party. However, PiS MP Józef Plich has stressed that the president has earned this honour due to his generous donations towards the renovation of Krakow’s monuments.
