Napieralski has left SLD

Grzegorz Napieralski, one of the major MPs from the Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) has resigned from the party.

He announced his decision at a press conference held outside the Parliament on Saturday. The party's former leader and presidential candidate explained he could no longer collaborate with the grouping due to an ongoing conflict with party leader Leszek Miller.

“We have gone our separate ways and have completely different outlooks on how to run politics,” Napieralski stated.

“This is why I have taken the decision to leave SLD. This is a very difficult step for me, especially after 20 years of membership. But there is no point in engaging in pointless disputes, such clashes won't change our reality. We're not helping our fellow citizens.”

Grzegorz Napieralski did not disclose his plans for the future, but assured he would do so early next week.

Meanwhile, former Your Movement spokesperson Andrzej Rozenek announced he would officially launch a new social democratic grouping jointly with Napieralski in the upcoming week.

An MP since 2004, Grzegorz Napieralski headed the SLD in the years 2008-2011. The official took part in the presidential race in 2010, coming in third with 13 percent of votes in the first round of the elections.
