Pirate Party of Poland Registered as a Political Party
On Monday 18 February 2013 The Polish Pirate Party announced that is has gained official registration as a political party and can contest in elections. It was a long and difficult road to registration but now it has been done. The Party was founded on 7 July 2006, and registered on 11 November 2007. Due to formal error, the party was de-registered in 2008. On 21 January 2012 the Court made a decision to re-enter the Pirates in the register of political parties under the number 328 and PP.PL was informed last week.
They have also revamped their website to make it more in line with the needs of an official party. They have introduced an events calendar and a forum to make it easier for curious Polish people to learn about the newly emerged Pirates in their midst. They will now be aiming for the European elections in 2014 and the Presidential election in 2015. We know that the Pirates of Europe and the world will unite in congratulating them.

About Andrew Reitemeyer
I joined the Pirate Party of Lower Saxony in Germany in April 2012, once I found out that non citizens were welcome to join and become active members of the Party. I joined the Pirate Times soon after it was started as a proof reader and am now an editor and author. Since then I have returned to my native New Zealand and joined the Pirate Party of New Zealand. Politically I come from the libertarian left and have, up to now, not regarded any political party as having a solution for the democratic deficit that envelops the world. With the advent of the Pirate Party, which truly embraces grass roots democracy, I have found a political home. The Pirate Times is a way I can contribute to furthering the Pirate Movement around the world. Skype: frithogar
