Adam Bielan on reaching “new circles and electorate”
The party stressed that during the congress, Bielan confirmed the participation of the formation in the United Right project and that the new statutory bodies were conducting talks on the government coalition. “I am convinced that our enthusiasm and program proposals will allow our formation to reach new circles and electorate and will ensure our camp for the third term” – emphasized Bielan, quoted in the press release.
In the Agreement, at the beginning of the year, a dispute arose over the group’s leadership. Bielan believes that the party’s management, expanded in October 2020 at the request of Gowin, was supplemented contrary to the statute, and that Gowin’s three-year term as party leader expired in April 2018.
In the second half of June, the Republican Congress was held, at which the commencement of the process of merging the Understanding with the Republican Party was announced.
After Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s decision to dismiss Gowin, which took place at the beginning of August, the management of his party decided to leave the United Right. The Republican Party, led by Adam Bielan, continues its cooperation with the ruling coalition.
