Oct 11 (Reuters) – Poland holds a parliamentary election on Sunday, with the ruling nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party seeking an unprecedented third term in power after eight years in power. WHAT’S AT STAKE? – A third PiS term could mean Poland continues to drift away from democratic standards, critics say. They accuse the government of politicizing the judiciary, turning public media into its propaganda tool and utilising state resources to consolidate its power, while undermining Poland’s position within the European Union. PiS says its goal is to enhance the efficiency of the courts and create a fairer economy, while defending Poland’s Catholic identity in the face of Western liberal pressures.
