The Telegraph’s Jonathan Isaby happened to bump into representatives of the Polish Law & Justice Party (PiS) yesterday, who were in Westminster for meetings with Hague and Cameron. Isaby says it looks likely that they’ll join the Czech Civic Democrats and the Bulgarian Union of Democratic Forces in the Movement for European Reform:

"From what I gather, it now looks like their party is extremely keen to
sign up to the new group and I am led to believe that an announcement
on this front should not be far off."

The socially conservative, fiscally centrist party is best known for the Kaczyński twins who for a while occupied the positions of President and Prime Minister between them.  They will be controversial allies for David Cameron.
