Law and Justice (PiS) leader Jarosław Kaczyński says he will postpone his knee implant surgery to dedicate himself to supporting President Andrzej Duda’s reelection campaign.

At the end of last year, Kaczyński underwent surgery to implant a knee joint endoprosthesis. The operation was planned for months, but Kaczyński decided to postpone it due to the parliamentary election campaign in 2019.

After the surgery, media outlets reported that a long and tough rehabilitation process awaited Kaczyński. Despite having difficulty walking, he is making public appearances and refuses to take time off from work.

PiS’s leader still has to undergo a surgery for his other knee. According to Polish news site Super Express, Kaczyński plans to postpone the operation yet again until the presidential elections are over.

A close associate of Kaczyński told Super Express that the upcoming elections are a very important test for the party and added that the party leader intends to actively participate in the campaign by visiting both smaller and larger towns.

The associate also claimed that Kaczyński is determined to strongly engage himself with the campaign and joked that “whatever the chairman says is law.”

PiS MP Marek Ast confirmed that Kaczyński wants to strongly support  Duda in his reelection campaign.

“This is the result of five good years of Andrzej Duda’s presidency and the ideological closeness which connects Duda with us and Kaczyński,” Ast emphasized.

He explained that although PiS differed with Duda sometimes when it came to the details, the party could always count on him when it came to fundamental issues.

“It’s better if there is agreement and cooperation between the president and the parliamentary majority, which is why we must win these elections,” the MP stressed.
