The Twins who want to govern Poland!

(Associated Press)

Sometimes you read a newspaper and come across a bizzare article in the World News section!
Today was no different! There are not many examples of twins in the world of politics! I have briefly mentioned Norris and Ross McWhirter, who were more admired for their interests in World Records as opposed to their dodgy political interests. Then of course there are the Eagle twins, Angela and Maria, who are the first pair of identical twins to sit in the House of Commons.
But it looks like Poland may soon be the first democracy in the world to be governed by identical twins!
Lech and Jaroslaw Kaczynski are making the running in the Presidential and Parliamentary elections. Lech, the younger by forty-five minutes, is standing for the Presidency, whilst Jaroslaw is in line to become the next Prime Minister. Even more interesting is the fact they were popular child actors! They were also prominent in Solidarity
It will certainly be interesting if they win!
