Poland president in crisis talks on fourth day of sit-in

Anti-government protesters gather in front of the Constitutional Court in Warsaw on December 18, 2016Polish President Andrzej Duda scrambled Monday to defuse a political crisis as opposition lawmakers occupied parliament for a fourth day to protest at an “illegal” budget vote and plans to restrict media access to the chamber. Thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets since Friday in Warsaw and other parts of the country in the latest popular action against moves deemed anti-democratic by the governing rightwing Law and Justice party (PiS) since it took office after October 2015 elections. Dozens of opposition MPs seized parliament’s main chamber and protesters blocked the exits to the building on Friday in a defiant show of anger against the government.
