A new Polish women's political party risks shocking the majority
Catholic country by plastering nude posters of their female
candidates for the upcoming October 21 parliamentary election.

Seven women, including Women's Party (Partia Kobiet, PK) founder and
president, writer Manuela Gretkowska, have launched their campaign
with nude posters of themselves with the logo "The Party of Women.
Poland is a Woman" masking their private parts.

The poster also incorporates their electoral slogan: "Everything for
the future... and nothing to hide."

"This poster is intended to shatter stereotypes in the anachronistic
world of politics, which is more often dominated by uncommunicative
men with their black tie outfits," Gretkowska told AFP.

"We are beautiful, nude, proud. We are true and sincere, body and
soul. This is not pornography, there is nothing to see in terms of
sex, our faces are intelligent, concerned, proud. We do not have our
mouths open nor our eyes closed," she said.

"All that interests us is the future, the position of women in
society. We will open the archives of the former secret communist
agents, we will make known their corrupt affairs," said Gretkowska.

The pursuit of former communist secret police agents and the business
of corruption has remained at the heart of Polish political life
since the twin brothers Lech and Jaroslaw Kaczynski came to power in
2005.

Founded at the beginning of the year, the Women's Party has 1,500
members today. Many party members include female celebrities, such as
actress Krystyna Janda or women's boxing champion Agnieszka Rylik.

"The last debate launched by the League of Polish Families (LPR)
regarding stiffening of the anti-abortion law is the straw that broke
the camel's back," said Gretkowska, regarding her decision to enter
the political arena.

According to the latest poll made on September 16 by the TNS OBOP
Institute, the Women's Party received three percent of voter's
intentions, less than the five percent needed to hold a seat in
parliament.

"It's a good result, with room to grow," she said.

(Partia Kobiet)
Well they will get taken seriously, great start.

What a total waste of money, another useless party in Polish politics.
