Sejm Marshal Elżbieta Witek’s invitation to the heads of clubs and parliamentary circles for talks on the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic was commented on in “Fakt after Fakt” by Deputy Speaker of the Sejm Piotr Zgorzelski (PSL). He judged it to be “a desperate attempt to admit that there was no strategy of any kind.” He also referred to the words of Deputy Minister of Health Waldemar Kraska. – Now you have noticed the gene of opposition in Poles? When we protested in defense of the constitution, when we protested against the violation and devastation of the judiciary, you did not see this gene of opposition in Poles – he said. Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Marcin Horała (PiS) said that he would be willing to support the bill on the verification of vaccination of employees.
Witek invited the heads of clubs and parliamentary circles on Wednesday for a conversation on “going beyond divisions” with a bill on the verification of vaccination of employees. According to her, if the clubs and parliamentary circles at the Wednesday meeting agree and will cooperate, there should be an inter-club team that will work out the assumptions of the act.
The preparation of the draft law on vaccination of employees was announced a few months ago by the Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski. Ultimately, however, the intention to submit such a proposal to the Sejm (as a parliamentary bill) was announced last Wednesday by PiS MPs: Czesław Hoc and Paweł Rychlik. The PiS bill has not yet been submitted to the Sejm. The announcement of its submission was openly criticized by MPs, incl. Anna Maria Siarkowska from the PiS club.
Zgorzelski: a desperate attempt to admit the lack of any strategy of action
Deputy Speaker of the Sejm, Piotr Zgorzelski (PSL), referring to the invitation, Marshal Witek said that “we always respond to the invitation when it is sent to our club, but we also realize that this invitation is” a desperate attempt to admit the lack of any strategy actions”.
– Today this government is in the balance between Mrs Siarkowska and Mr Kowalski. It really depends on them which way the government will direct its attention – he assessed. He added that “the government is afraid that if it puts the government bill on the table, it could have effects and repercussions that they simply would not have a majority.”
– Not long ago, we heard from the deputy health minister that we must not introduce any kind of restrictions, because Poles have such a natural gene of opposition. For God’s sake, do not offend the intelligentsia of Poles. Now have you noticed the gene of opposition in Poles? When we protested in defense of the constitution, when we protested against the violation and devastation of the judiciary, you did not see this gene of opposition in Poles – said Zgorzelski. He referred to the statement of Deputy Health Minister Waldemar Kraska.
Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Marcin Horała (PiS) said that “we do not know the final shape of the act after the legislative process, but” in principle he would be willing to support it “.
