Liroy (real name Piotr Liroy-Marzec) ran the election on the ticket of the Kukiz’15 political grouping, which is led by Paweł Kukiz, himself a rock musician.

“The same people are both specialists in air disasters and at the same time talk about abortion issues. It’s a tragedy,” Liroy told the TVN24 broadcaster, referring to mainstream politicians.

He said that Poland needs a dialogue with citizens and a change to the constitution.
