Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki on Sunday blamed Lech Walesa for his painful defeat in Poland’s presidential elections but called on his supporters to vote for the Solidarity leader in a runoff next Sunday.

He also asked his campaign officials to organize a new party called Democratic Union to contest the elections. Mazowiecki finished behind Walesa and outsider Stanislaw Tyminski in last week’s vote.
