Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski rallied on Friday ahead of the upcoming presidential election in central Warsaw with the support of hundreds who had gathered.
Trzaskowski is will be facing the current President Andrzej Duda in the elections on Sunday, which had been postponed, due to the coronavirus crisis. Trzaskowski, considered by many as a liberal choice, is pro-EU and a supporter of LGBT+ rights, and has been the centre of controversy in a deeply conservative country.
«There is a manipulation of reality. They are trying to attack all those who built Poland,» said Trzaskowski at the last rally before people of Poland head to the ballots on Sunday. «Will they tell us what a family is? They are trying to convince us that only they know what patriotism is,» he added.
«We will still fight for Poland to change, real change and change for the better,» he said ahead of the election, which had originally been scheduled from May 10.
The Law and Justice (PiS) party, considered to be «right-wing,» has been in power since 2015.
