First Green ever in a regional parliament in Poland
Yesterday local and regional elections took place in Poland. We learn from the very first results that the Greens gained seats in the councils of Warsaw, Poznan, and Opole. The co-partyleader was elected in the regional parliament of Silesia, and most probably the Greens also won one seat in the regional parliament of West Pomerania.
Being of Polish descent myself, I think we can truly take inspiration from these results, here in South Wales, as these results were unimaginable just a few years ago.
We need to press ahead to secure our own breakthroughs at the WAG elections next year and the Council elections in 2012. I truly believe that the first Green Councillor in Wales will be here in Bridgend.
