At 12 noon, the details of the coalition agreement between the Civic Coalition, Third Road and the New Left are to be presented in the Sejm. – Coalition talks are very good. They ended successfully last night – said Krzysztof Gawkowski, vice-president of Nowa Lewica, on RMF FM. At tvn24.pl we report on the most important political events of Friday.
IN elections to the Sejm, which took place on October 15, the Civic Coalition won 157 seats, Trzecia Droga – 65, and New Left – 26, which gives them a majority of 248 MPs. The leaders of the parties forming these electoral committees announced the signing of a coalition agreement in order to create a government headed by the head of PO. Donald Tusk.
Its announcement is scheduled for Friday at 12 p.m.
Meeting at the PO headquarters
On Thursday evening, a meeting of party leaders was held at the headquarters of the Civic Platform. It was attended by Donald Tusk, Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz, Szymon Hołownia, as well as the leaders of the Left. It started around 6 p.m. and ended around 9 p.m.
– We talked about everything, and we will inform you about everything tomorrow – he said on Thursday evening Włodzimierz Czarzasty.
On Friday, on Radio RMF FM, the deputy chairman of the New Left, Krzysztof Gawkowski, announced that “today we will talk about the program map, what is most important for the future coalition, and what the division of positions in the presidium of the Sejm and Senate should look like.”
When asked “if he feels ready to take on the mission of deputy prime minister and minister of digitization”, Gawkowski said: “I think that every politician in Poland feels that he can raise the quality of this government, otherwise he would not be suitable for politics.” – It’s not like we can say that an MP is not suitable for something. If someone has been burdened with a social mandate of thousands of votes, I wouldn’t say that someone is unsuitable for something, he explained. “I’m also good for something,” he assured.
– I am ready to act for the good of the state – just like every citizen. I don’t want to talk about personal details because it’s difficult to talk about myself. I can say that the coalition talks are very good. They ended successfully last night – and this is very good news for Poland – emphasized Krzysztof Gawkowski.
Gawkowski: this contract is for four years
When asked whether the coalition agreement “will include hard specifics or general formulations”, he replied that “there will be solutions that are very specific.” – I can say this strongly, but there will also be solutions that are directional, that is, showing how to work together to achieve the goal – he explained.
– But what is most important – this contract is for four years. This means that we managed to prepare such material, such a directional plan, that we are to rule together for four years, he said. – This is the most important thing for Poland. This means that this is not a short-term contract – but for four solid years of joint work – said Krzysztof Gawkowski.
On Monday in Wrocław, Tusk announced that “the coalition is finalized in every detail.” – We will be ready to initial the coalition agreement before Independence Day. I think that on Friday the leaders who led these negotiations will be able to publicly confirm that the coalition is a fact, he said.
