Porozumienie Centrum (PC; English: Centre Agreement) was a Polish Christian democratic political party. The party rose in 1990 after breaking with Solidarność. Its chairman was Jarosław Kaczyński. In its programme, the PC opposed socialism and was anti-communist. In 1997 PC joined the Solidarity Electoral Action (AWS) movement, but in 2001 Lech and Jarosław Kaczyński created a new party, called Law and Justice as the successor of the PC.
