Yesterday the was an election in Poland. Donald Tusk of the Civic Alliance Party beat Taroslaw Kaczynski of the Law and Justice Party for Prime minister Massive win for Polish opposition. Tusk Promised to Lower taxes, to build closer ties with the European Union, and a business friendly administration. As Christian Science Monitor Columnist Robert Marquand put it, “Sunday's vote decides whether Poland turns inward, chauvinist, and authoritarian under Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski – or flowers into a more open economy and civil society, as well as a closer partner to Europe More nationalism or closer ties to Europe? . While Tusk looks forward to working with the United States, he promised to pull 900 troops out of Iraq. Sunday’s election is similar to the election of Nicolas Sarkozy French voters split on working week.
Alain Bie, a 30-year-old, bartender explains why he voted for Sarkozy, “The owner told me that normally I was restricted to 35 hours a week, but I told him I wanted to be able to work more and make more money.” Sarkozy ran on a motto called, “Work more, earn more.” Tusk promised to lower taxes. It seems that voters are preaching one messages, “Smaller government and lower taxes!”
