WARSAW Jan 9 Polish ruling party has retracted
from its proposals to limit media access to the country's
parliament, speaker of the upper house said on Monday, adding
that the party wants to resolve the ongoing parliamentary crisis
"We are taking a step back," Stanislaw Karczewski, the
speaker, told journalists. "We have made a decision to go back
to the old rules, we are not changing them."
The party's proposal in December to limit journalists'
access led to a sit-in protest of opposition lawmakers who are
still blocking the access to the podium in the lower house.
