Agreement (Polish: Porozumienie),[6] is a conservative and liberal conservative political party in Poland. It was founded as Alliance (Polish: Zjednoczenie) in November 2017, led by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Science and Higher Education Jaros?aw Gowin,[7] as an expansion of Gowin's previous party, Poland Together, before changing its name. It is allied with the ruling party of Poland, Law and Justice (PiS), as part of the informal United Right coalition,[8] and most of its MPs and Senators sit in the PiS parliamentary club.

History

On October 13, 2017, Gowin announced at a press conference regarding ex-Kukiz'15 and Republican MP Magdalena B?e?ska's decision to join Poland Together that it would be transformed into a new party including elements of the Republicans, former members of Janusz Korwin-Mikke's Liberty party, and local politicians at its November 4 congress.[9][10] According to Poland Together members, the decision was partly taken to strengthen Gowin's position within the United Right and to avoid confusion with the left-wing Razem party.[11] Several days later, it was revealed that the ex-Civic Platform mayor of Kalisz, Grzegorz Sapi?ski,[12] and the Christian Local Government Movement founded by former ?ód? mayor Jerzy Kropiwnicki would also join the new party.[13] Ex-Polish People's Party senator Józef Zaj?c joined Poland Together on October 30 in anticipation of the new party's official launch.[14]

At the November 4 Poland Together congress, the name of the new party was revealed as Porozumienie (Alliance).[15] Gowin announced that B?e?ska, Zaj?c, and ex-Modern MP Zbigniew Gryglas would join the Alliance, with B?e?ska and Gryglas becoming deputy leaders,[16] as well as the creation of programmatic, local government, and economic councils to advise the leadership of the new party.[8]

Ideology

The party defines itself as a "modern conservative" party, with strong emphasis on economic liberalism and reducing bureaucracy, and claims to be moderately conservative on social and cultural issues. It believes that local government should be encouraged and supported by the central government.[3]
