Abstract

The Polish election of 2001 marked the reconstruction of the Polish right in parliament, the exit of the former governing parties and the entry of four new parties into parliament including, for the first time, some openly Eurosceptic parties. There is some debate among academics and journalists about the character of these new parties, but these views do not always reflect the attitudes of the Polish people themselves towards the new parties: how they placed them on a left-right scale, and how far they sympathized with them - even if they did not actually vote for them. Although some academic commentators have argued that Europe was not an important issue in that election, in fact the 'most important' issues had little impact on sympathies for either old or new parties, while Europe had a strong impact - yet for essentially pragmatic rather than cultural or nationalist reasons.
