Today your courage and selflessness are especially important, said Donald Tusk at the convention on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of the Committee for the Defense of Democracy. According to the PO chairman and former prime minister, the present government does not have this courage and disinterestedness. – It is a great problem for all Poles that we have power concentrated in the hands of one man who, not for the first time, but today it is especially acute for everyone, turns out to be a coward – he said.

On Saturday afternoon in Warsaw, the convention of the Committee for the Defense of Democracy began on the occasion of the sixth anniversary of the committee’s existence. The following spoke there, among others, the former prime minister, former head of the European Council, and currently the chairman of the Civic Platform, Donald Tusk.

– Today your courage and selflessness are especially important – he turned to the gathered people. – They are especially important when there is an authority on the other side that is cowardly and self-interested – he said.

Tusk mentioned that now “not only the constitution, legal order, independence of the courts, freedom of the media are at risk, but human life is more and more often threatened by cowardice and self-interest”.

– In this cruel time of a pandemic, a growing fear and a price tag, we have power that is actually concentrated in the hands of one man. Believe me, this is not my obsession, it is a great systemic problem, it is a great problem for all Poles, that we have power concentrated in the hands of one man who, not for the first time, but today it is especially painful for everyone, turns out to be a coward, he deserted – he said.

Tusk: Poland is ruled by a coward in times when brave people are needed

Tusk also said that “malicious people can tell anecdotes about the PiS president, who overslept when he had to be courageous, that he and his adjutants were always late with decisions” when it comes to the situation at the border or on inflation but “being late is not their chief sin.”

– Kaczynski doesn’t make a decision either [podejmuje je – przyp. red.] delayed dramatically not because the malicious said that he wears his watch upside down. They don’t make decisions because they are doing something completely different. They chicken when you really have to face an evil and a serious danger, such as a pandemic, he said.

In his opinion, “Poland is ruled by a coward in times when brave people are needed”.
