Huge Test for Polish Democracy; Some See Conspiracy

Saturday, 10 Apr 2010 01:03 PM

Saturday's plane crash that claimed the lives of Polish President Lech Kaczynski and 96 others is “the greatest event to test Poland's democracy since the fall of the Iron Curtain,” says a prominent Warsaw newspaper.

Writing in the immediate aftermath of Saturday's tragedy, Andrew Kureth, editor of the Warsaw Business Journal, says the crash created a “huge vacuum” in Poland's political, military and civilian leadership.

“There will be many who see conspiracy,” Kureth writes. “There will be those who call for drastic measures. There will be those who cynically see the opportunity to take advantage of this tragedy for their own political gain. There will be even more who accuse opponents of such opportunism.

“But Polish politicians must keep a cool head. … The true test of a democracy is how well its laws are adhered to in crisis.”
