Recently, Sujit Choudhry wrote and published a book about democracy in the world. One of the chapters he wrote about talked about the recent elections in Poland. Recently, Poland held an election where a right-wing party won and now occupies a majority in the parliament. With the new party now a majority, Choudhry believes that Poland will gradually ruin the framework of its democracy. He believes this to be the case because Poland’s new ruling party will look to eliminate any obstacles that hinder its ability to rule and also look to ensure its power and authority in future elections (chronicleweek.com). All of these characteristics are likely to threaten the very nature of democracy in Poland according to the information provided by Choudhry.
