Since 2015, Poland has been governed by the Law and Justice Party, which has been sceptical about EU climate policy and been at loggerheads with Brussels over rule of law, leading to the suspension of EU funds, including those earmarked for the green transition.
This could all be about to change following October’s nationalelection where the opposition parties together won more support than the Law and Justice Party. With the groups now expected to form a coalition, this could mean a more pro-EU, climate-friendly government.
To discuss what changes the new Polish government might bring about, founder and president of the Polish think tank Forum Energii, Dr Joanna Maćkowiak-Pandera, joins David Weston and Kira Taylor.
