Jarosław Gowin, the leader of the Agreement party, one of Law and Justice (PiS) party’scoalition partners, is now working with the Polish opposition after resigning from his position as deputy prime minister earlier in April.
Gowin was forced to resign after he opposed PiS’ plans to use postal voting in May’s presidential elections.
Now, Gowin is looking for allies and is in talks with the Polish opposition to work out a position concerning the election date. He has already negotiated with Civic Platform (PO) leader Borys Budka, Polish People’s Party (PSL) head and presidential candidate Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz and his coalition partner Paweł Kukiz.
Deputy Speaker of the Sejm and PiS caucus head Ryszard Terlecki stated in an interview for Radio Kraków that Gowin’s Agreement party is more than just a coalition partner for PiS because the party had started from PiS’s lists in the previous elections.
He added that he does not expect a “group of MPs” who started from PiS’s lists to “exhibit such irresponsible behavior.”
Terlecki stressed that he hoped that sensibility and a sense of responsibility to the state will prevail.
