If the Civic Coalition, made up of left-liberal parties, wins the parliamentary elections in the “darkest scenario,” Poland will not be sovereign, as the opposition party is “in fact a German formation,” said ruling Law and Justice (PiS) party leader Jarosław Kaczyński while speaking during a public gathering in Zamość in eastern Poland.
“The darkest scenario is them winning the elections. Civic Coalition is in fact a German formation, tightly linked with Germany. That is why there would be no sovereignty, which would bring many different and far-reaching consequences,” stated Kaczyński.
Kaczyński added that Poland pursues sovereign policies, and the current ruling party in the country is independent, which is a net benefit to citizens.
Kaczyński commented on the difficult situation facing his party in future elections.
“They are still a long time away, but we can already speak of the alternative: On one side is the united right camp, and on the other, the opposition, which is united in only one thing: to be opposed to PiS,” he stated.
According to him, the rule of the opposition would mean a deep crisis of Polish democracy and rule of law. “This would also mean the end of real media pluralism. Because if it is said that public television is to be liquidated or completely subordinated, it will again be as it was under their rule when mass media spoke with one voice, largely German,” said Kaczyński.
The head of the ruling party also warned that the opposition plans to end the social programs introduced by PiS, saying, “The great social policy that we are now pursuing will be radically limited — if not liquidated.”
“The fact that we have the funds for investments, social policy, armament, culture, ad protecting our monuments is not only the result of economic growth but also because we are able to stop a huge ‘outflow’ of money. Do you think that it will last? No. Those funds will be gone,” he said.
Kaczyński also stated that Poland is a community where people from different social groups should have equal opportunities. “It is not something that is only recalled during ceremonies, it should be something real,” adding that “it is the foundation of our politics.”
