politics and government of
Poland

The Right Wing of the Republic (Polish: Prawica Rzeczypospolitej) is a political party in Poland founded by former Marshal of the Sejm Marek Jurek on 20 April 2007 after he had left Law and Justice on 16 April 2007, when the Sejm failed to pass a constitutional amendment protecting prenatal life. The party positions itself as a Christian conservative party with a strong focus on family rights and a pro-life stance.[1][2] The party is currently outside Poland's parliament, as it failed to gain the required number of votes in the 2007 parliamentary elections.

Political program

The program of the Right Wing of the Republic includes:

  • Constitutional protection for prenatal life.
  • Ban on pornography.
  • Tax concessions for families.
  • Privatization.
  • Longer maternity leave.
  • Reduced government spending.
  • Labor law liberalization.
  • Holidays on Sunday and other religious festivities.
