The Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) political party has suspended one of its more well-known members, Ryszard Kalisz. The party's executive committee made the decision on Wednesday. He may even be expelled from the party, if the party arbitration court so decides.
Mr Kalisz earned the ire of his fellow party members when flamboyant politician Janusz Palikot and former President Aleksander Kwaśniewski named him a “liason officer” between SLD and Europe Plus, a new political grouping in which Mr Palikot and President Kwaśniewski are cooperating.
In February, the two politicians announced they would create a common voting list for the upcoming EU parliamentary elections. SLD party leadership had said it would not cooperate with the new alliance.
