Poland's power twin and a coalminer's daughter

Jaroslaw Kaczynski (L), leader of the conservative opposition Law and Justice (PiS), and Beata Szydlo, candidate for prime minister, celebrate with supporters at the party's headquarters in Warsaw on October 25, 2015Poland’s conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party, which won an outright majority in Sunday’s general election according to an exit poll, is led by eurosceptic Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who has tapped Beata Szydlo, a relative unknown, for prime minister. JAROSLAW KACZYNSKI, 66, is the undisputed leader of PiS, which he co-founded with his identical twin brother Lech in 2001. A master of political intrigue since he played a behind-the-scenes role in the Solidarity trade union’s dismantling of communism in Poland in 1989, Kaczynski is a fiery orator and a polarising figure.
