It is represented in the Polish parliament and in Poland's current ruling right-wing government. The media in some western European countries have depicted the party as distasteful, and it is widely regarded by them as being a far-right party. In particular, the party's opposition to homosexual rights has led to condemnation from european Left.

Their leader, Roman Giertych, studied Law and History at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań. During his career his political alliances have included such Polish National Democrats as Jan Łopuszański, Antoni Macierewicz, Gabriel Janowski and others.

Some sources claim that the LPR owes much of its success to Radio Maryja, a Catholic radio station with a large and growing following among both older Poles and those with strongly religious worldview. Both Radio Maryja and LPR are financed by Jan Kobylanski, a Uruguay-based millionaire. Kobylanski was reportedly prevented from entering the US due to his alleged wartime collaboration with the Nazis. Soon after the election in 2001 a group of deputies separated from LPR, creating a new party known now as Porozumienie Polskie (Polish Circle) led by Jan Łopuszański and Ruch Katolicko-Narodowy (Catholic-National Movement) led by Antoni Macierewicz.

In the 2004 elections to the European Parliament LPR received 16% votes, which gave it 15 out of 54 seats reserved for Poland in European Parliament. This made the LPR the second largest party in Poland in that election, second only to the liberal conservative Platforma Obywatelska, and well ahead of the then ruling post-communist Sojusz Lewicy Demokratycznej, the populist Samoobrona and the conservative Prawo i Sprawiedliwość (also known as PiS). However, two notable features of that election were the low overall turnout (less than 20% of eligible voters) and the high average age of LPR voters. Thus, the long-term significance of the LPR's strong performance in that election is unclear. In the 2005 elections LPR again received 8% of votes, but saw its seats reduced from 38 to 34. Elections to the European Parliament were held from June 10, 2004 to June 13, 2004 in the 25 member states of the European Union, using varying election days according to local custom. ...

Political agenda

The political agenda is a mix of nationalism and Christian solidarism. Recently the party has begun to emphasize populism, patriotism and conservative social values.

The LPR opposes: the selling of land to foreign nationals (especially German Heimatvertriebene), abolishing the draft, legalization of "soft drugs", abortion, euthanasia, and gay marriage. It supports capital punishment, maintaining universal health care and public education, and supports the withdrawal of Polish troops from Iraq.

The party particularly appeals to voters sympathetic towards traditional social values, the Catholic faith, and the concept of Polish national sovereignty. Its populism also attracts some who feel lost in the post-1989 political transformation of the country, although the post-communist PSL and Andrzej Lepper's Samoobrona ("Self Defense") appeal more directly to so-called marginalized voters.

Roman Giertych reactivated the "All-Polish Youth" (Młodzież Wszechpolska) organization in 1989, becoming its chairman; he remains honorary chairman. For several years he was a member of the National-Democratic Party (Stronnictwo Narodowo-Demokratyczne) and the National Party (Stronnictwo Narodowe), which merged with several other organizations to form the League of Polish Families (Liga Polskich Rodzin, LPR) in 2001.

Stance towards the European Union

The party is anti-EU. Although it was the only significant political force in Poland that unconditionally opposed Polish membership in the European Union (believing that a union controlled by social liberals could never be reformed), after Polish accession to the EU the party participated in European Parliament elections, in order to have actual influence over decisions made regarding Poland. During the 2004 controversy surrounding Rocco Buttiglione (the conservative Italian nominee as European Commissioner for "Justice, Freedom, and Security"), the LPR deputies demanded the dissolution of the parliament, feeling that it was too much under the influence of a homosexual lobby. Euroscepticism (from European and scepticism) has become a general term for opposition to the process of European integration. ...

League of Polish Families - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (909 words)
The League of Polish Families (Liga Polskich Rodzin, or LPR) is a conservative extremist political party within the Polish Parliament, and a coalition partner in Poland's current ruling government.
Although it was the only significant political force in Poland that unconditionally opposed Polish membership in the European Union (believing that a union formed by social liberals could never be reformed), after Polish accession to the EU the party participated in European Parliament elections, in order to have actual influence over decisions made regarding Poland.
The Parade took place despite the ban, and eggs, stones and bottles were thrown at the marchers by young people (nearly all men) from the All-Polish Youth (Młodzież Wszechpolska) youth organisation (a Youth group associated with the League of Polish Families), with at least two people injured and hospitalized.
All-Polish Youth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1383 words)
The organisation, properly the Academic Union "All-Polish Youth" (Związek Akademicki "Młodzież Wszechpolska"), was founded in 1922 as an ideological youth organisation with a strong nationalist sentiment, and was the largest student organisation in the Second Polish Republic.
The term "All-Polish" is intended to represent a desire to unify all Polish lands, and accentuate national ties and the equality of all people of Polish origin regardless of their wealth or social status.
The modern incarnation of the All-Polish Youth was founded in Poznań in 1989, on the initiative of Roman Giertych, the current leader of the League of Polish Families (LPR).
