Far-right party chooses candidate

WARSAW, Poland — Poland’s far-right Confederation party on Saturday chose a lawmaker who previously led an ultra-nationalist youth organization as its candidate in the country’s spring presidential election.

Krzysztof Bosak, one of the 11 Confederation members elected to Poland’s 460-seat parliament in October, vowed to adhere to the party’s conservative Christian values.

Bosak, 37, said after his nomination at a party convention in Warsaw that he would work to promote patriotism and to make Poland a “strong nation of free people.”
