Extraordinarily POV[edit]

-Putting Democratic Bloc in quotations

-Using the phrase "brutal persecution"

-Baseless claim of vote-rigging

-Self-serving use of the term "communist government"

-Baseless claim of election fraud after 1947

-Use of the term "Soviet proxies"

-Baseless claim of referendum falsifacton —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 204.102.211.115 (talk) 03:40, 6 December 2006 (UTC).

In his report to Stalin, after the 1947 results, Pałkin estimated that the real results (i.e. votes cast) gave communists about 50%.

Then that means the Democratic Bloc was victorious and had the right to rule.

Please note those issues are discussed at Talk:History_of_Poland_(1945–1989)#1947_Election. We are still waiting for the anon's to provide any references to back up his claim...-- Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus | talk  02:34, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Neutrality disputed[edit]

The neutrality of the article is disputed. The way the text is written shows a strong bias and opinionated characterisations, which reflect the authors' viewpoint rather than of coutside sources. Sample sentences( with emphasis added in some): " The anti-communist opposition candidates and activists were brutally persecuted and the eventual results were falsified." (that's the introductory statement in the article); "the government ... since its establishment in 1944 was controlled by the communists"; "government officials simply filled in the numbers "; "Over the next two years, the Communists would ensure their rise to power by monopolizing political power in Poland under the PZPR" (a sentence which, besides being bad English, is sourced to a PoloniaToday.com article, which does not contain the characterization 'cited' in Wiki); "every single Polish election until the fall of communism in 1989 would be falsified in a similar way" (a claim which, in wikipedia, needs justification with sources for every single election); etc. As it happens, my own personal interpetation of historical events does not differ much from the original author's --or the current text's-- but personal opinions (and POV) are one thing and Wiki articles quite another! The article is impecabble in most aother aspetcs but clearly needs editing to rid itself of pronounced bias. -The Gnome (talk) 11:22, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

"The Communists admitted in the last year of their rule that they had resorted to systematic vote rigging, both in a referendum in June 1946 and in the 1947 parliamentary elections." -> Where, when, by whom? Too easy to publish lies, too easy... - 85.247.85.110 (talk) 15:46, 29 April 2011 (UTC)

Unreferenced[edit]

The following unref sentence was moved here. It seems plausible, but needs a ref before being restored.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:58, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

The Communists admitted in the last year of their rule that they had resorted to systematic vote rigging, both in a referendum in June 1946 and in the 1947 parliamentary elections.

B-class passed[edit]

This seems rather close to B-class. But till a formal review is held, it is C-class. Upon closer look, it is (just moved one unref sentence to talk for further discussion). --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 16:51, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
