 Tadeusz Mazowiecki --  Britannica Concise Encyclopedia - The online encyclopedia you can trust!
In early 1989 Mazowiecki served as the mediator in talks between the government and Solidarity that resulted in Solidarity's legalization and the holding of the freest national elections in Poland since 1947.
Through these means Mazowiecki was successful at stabilizing Poland's consumer-goods market, increasing exports, and restoring the government's finances, but only at the cost of sharply rising unemployment and a fall in real wages.
Solidarity was founded in September 1980, was forcibly suppressed by the Polish government in December 1981, and reemerged in 1989 to become the first opposition movement to participate in free elections in a Soviet-bloc nation since the 1940s.

 Stanisław Tymiński - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the first free presidential elections on November 25, 1990, the two most promising candidates were Solidarity leader Lech Wałęsa and prime minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki.
Against all expectations he overtook Mazowiecki (18.1%) with 23.1% of the vote and made it to a sensational second place behind Wałęsa with 39.96%.
Tymiński's adversaries took to a similar strategy; the renowned daily Gazeta Wyborcza, which supported Mazowiecki, reported that Tymiński had had contact with the secret police apparatus himself, a story that was not withdrawn until after the elections.

Prime Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki and Solidarity leader Lech Walesa have shadowboxed for months over the pace and direction of political and economic reform.
Mazowiecki's announcement ended speculation that he might cede the presidency to Walesa in the hope of halting the country's growing political polarization.
In the end, Mazowiecki was swayed by the argument that Walesa, who forced Jaruzelski to resign, should not be allowed simply to steamroller his way into power.
