The prime minister has drawn hundreds of billions of zlotys from the constitutional budget into some parallel budget, because there he can spend public money on a notebook or even on a napkin – said Dr. He emphasized that “if not for the financial invoice, we would not know that the state is eavesdropping on citizens and we would not know that there is a Pegasus program.”
Dr. Sławomir Dudek referred to the issue of spending money outside the state budget by the government. – Transparency of public finances is the basis of democracy. Behind everything that the state does, there is money somewhere – he said on Tuesday in “One on One”. He noted that “if not for the financial invoice, we would not know that the state is listening to citizens and we would not know that it is program Pegasus“. – If the Pegasus program had been bought with these funds from the parallel budget, we would not have known that it existed until now – added Dudek.
“Financial transparency means that we as a society control what our money is spent on,” he said.
– Each of us elects an MP who defends the matters we care about, defends our region, and here it turns out that in parliament, MPs, our representatives, our supervisory board, which oversees public finances, do not decide how they are divided expenses, because the prime minister created a parallel budget – an spending paradise – said Dudek.
– Just as dishonest companies take out their tax books to countries so that the tax office does not see how much profit they have, what did the prime minister do? He drew hundreds of billions of zlotys from the constitutional budget to some parallel budget, because there he can spend public money on a notebook or even on a napkin, he assessed.
Dudek: the real deficit is PLN 100 billion
He referred to the issue of the Countermeasure Fund COVID-19from which, according to the report NIK, aid was financed, among other things, for producers rearing sows. – What does spending on sows in agriculture have to do with the fight against COVID? – He was asking. – Regional Center of Patriotism named after Maria I Lech Kaczynskithis is the fight against COVID-19, the construction of a parking lot located next to the parish church or the revitalization of tourist space, the construction of a viewing tower – he mentioned.
– Perhaps these goals are right. I do not deny this Center, this lookout tower, but it should be spent as part of the state budget from some tourist section, not from the COVID-19 fund – he noted.
He reminded that “the government sent a financial report to the Sejm, in which it says that the state budget deficit is PLN 12 billion.”
He added that “the real deficit is PLN 100 billion”. – So the government sent 12 percent of the truth to the Sejm. Economists know this, but the society is being swindled that there is a deficit of PLN 12 billion – said Dudek.
