Jerzy Janusz Kropiwnicki (born 5 July 1945 in Częstochowa) is a Polish right-wing politician, member of Law and Justice party.

He was leader of small party Christian-National Union (Zjednoczenie Chrześcijańsko-Narodowe, ZChN).[1] He was a president of the city of Łódź from 2002 until 2010.

In 2003 he banned pride in the city (which was taking place between 1997 and 2003).[2]

On November 2006 he was reelected for the office of president of the city of Łódź, but was ousted by referendum in January 2010, in which 96 percent of voters (turnout 22.2 percent) voted against him[3] (parties in favour of Kropiwnicki advised their supporters to boycott the referendum in an effort to bust quorum).
