Perhaps in a week there will be such a scenario that President Andrzej Duda will come to his senses and think logically, look at the mathematics and know that 194 is less than 248 – said Joanna Scheuring-Wielgus in “Fakty po Faktach” ( New Left) on the president’s decision to entrust the mission of forming a government. – It’s hard for me to imagine that (the president – ed.) would accelerate Donald Tusk’s rule – said Marcin Horała (PiS).
After elections parliamentary president Andrzej Duda held consultations with representatives of electoral committees that will be represented in the next Sejm. He informed that there are two serious candidates for the position of prime minister. He clarified that he was the PiS candidate Mateusz Morawieckiand KO, Third Way and Left – Donald Tusk. The democratic opposition can count on 248 seats in the new Sejm, and PiS – on 194, so there is no majority (231).
The president has not yet decided who he will entrust with the mission of forming the government. Andrzej Duda also stated that he had tentatively planned the first meeting of the Sejm of the 10th term for Monday, November 13.
Horała: PiS lacked an offer to the aspirational electorate
Marcin Horała (Law and Justice) said that “it’s rather difficult for me to imagine” that in the so-called In the first step, the president entrusted the mission of forming a government to a representative of today’s opposition. – This custom, which is of course just a custom, but has already become established in Poland, is that the party that has won the most votes and has the largest parliamentary club is the first to be given the mission to form a government – he added.
The Konkret24 editorial team recalled that in 1991 the president entrusted the mission of forming a government to a representative of a group that was not the largest force in the Sejm; such a scenario also took place in 1993. Moreover, in nine parliamentary elections since 1991, in four cases a prime minister was designated before coalitions were finally formed.

Horała also stated that “the president has never hidden his critical attitude towards Donald Tusk’s government in his statements.” – It’s hard for me to imagine that he would accelerate Donald Tusk’s rule – he added.
Speaking about the reasons for PiS’s defeat in the elections, he said that “Undoubtedly, Law and Justice lacked some offer for the aspirational electorate.” – In our times, a real revolution in dignity has taken place. Many people who had not been consumers before, because they only had money based on need, became consumers. It has gained this subjectivity and would also like some aspirational offer, some symbolic confirmation of its material advancement, he said.
Scheuring-Wielgus: the prime minister humiliates himself every day
Joanna Scheuring-Wielgus also commented on the issue of entrusting the mission of creating a government. – Just two weeks ago, I would have said that President Andrzej Duda would be satisfied if he managed to humiliate Mateusz Morawiecki, who did not win a vote of confidence in the Sejm. Now I can say that looking at what Prime Minister Morawiecki says and how he behaves, he humiliates himself every day by speaking, speaking and providing various information – she said.
– We learned that he said that the Constitutional Tribunal’s judgment was a mistake. The amount of humiliation and the way Prime Minister Morawiecki makes fun of himself is increasing. Perhaps in a week there will be such a scenario that President Andrzej Duda will come to his senses and think logically, look at the math and know that 194 is less than 248 – she continued.
– And we, as the democratic majority that talks to each other and has an almost ready coalition agreement, will be able to form a government – she added.
