Will PiS and Third Droga support “grandma's”? – There are some doubts about this project. But these are the details that we will discuss. We are in favor of working on this project in the Sejm – said Krzysztof Szczucki from the PiS club in “Kropka nad i” on TVN24. Ryszard Petru from the Trzecia Droga-Polska 2050 club admitted that he was not a supporter of this solution, but he understood “that we need to reach an agreement in the coalition.”

Prime Minister Donald Tusk said that on Tuesday the government adopted a draft law on the Active Parent program. These are the so-called “grandmothers”. The program envisages the introduction of three new benefits for parents of children aged 12 to 35 months. Now the bill will go to the Sejm. – If the Sejm and the president do not cause us any trouble, this benefit should be available in every Polish home on October 1 – said the head of government.

This matter was discussed in “Kropka nad i” on TVN24 by Ryszard Petru from the Trzecia Droga-Polska 2050 club and Krzysztof Szczucki from the PiS club. They were asked whether their groups would support this solution.

– We even submitted this project faster than the current government, wanting to do it for them and seeing that they do not fulfill their promises. We support all pro-social solutions. The devil is in the details. There will be work in committees. But overall, we support all solutions that support people and parenthood, as long as they are socially just, said Szczucki.

– There are some doubts about this project. But these are the details that we will discuss. We are in favor of working on this project in the Sejm – he added.

Petru was also asked about his support for this solution.

– We (in the club – ed.) have no decision on this matter, it was not the subject of the coalition agreement. I understand that we need to reach an agreement in the coalition, he said. He added that he was not personally in favor of this idea, but “he is aware that a compromise must be sought in the coalition.”

– I believe that health insurance premiums should be reduced first. We have submitted a project to reduce the contribution to a lump sum level – for employers, entrepreneurs and employees – PLN 300, 500, 700 flat-rate contribution. We believe this project is meant to be a first. And then there can be space for “grandmother's” ones, he added.

Szczucki: PiS is the winner of the elections

The program's guests also discussed the results of Sunday's local government elections. In the elections to the assemblies in seven voivodeships, Law and Justice received the greatest support, and in the remaining nine – the Civic Coalition. However, not everywhere where PiS achieved the highest result, politicians from Jarosław Kaczyński's party have a comfortable situation. In Podlasie, they need a Confederation councilor to rule. In Mazovia and Łódź, it is more likely that the coalition of KO and Trzecia Droga will take power because PiS does not have an independent majority there. In such a system, PiS would have power in five voivodeships, and the October 15 coalition would have power in eleven.

Data from all electoral districts. The situation in the assemblies

– The winner is our Law and Justice party. If it were otherwise, the December 13 coalition – Platforma, Polska 2050, Third Way – would not justify from Sunday, from Sunday evening, why they probably won the elections. We hear translations, we hear explanations, they reassure voters, so they are not satisfied with the results. We won 166 poviats, these are the poviats in which we will govern – argued Szczucki.

Petru: they won nominally, they lost in reality

Petru also commented on the election result. – They won, but they are not in power, so it is such an absurd victory – he said.

– We assumed that we would have power in 15 assemblies, that is, perhaps without the Podkarpackie voivodeship. In this sense, we wanted more and we didn't win as hard as we expected, he added. At the same time, he added that “Third Way is very pleased with the result.” – Because we achieved a very similar result to the one we achieved in the parliamentary elections. Therefore, the coalition of October 15, (…), showed that we still have the majority, we are winning against PiS, we are gaining new footholds in voivodeships – Ryszard Petru continued.

– And yet, when it comes to city mayors, it's a pogrom, which means you're not there at all – he said to Szczucki.

– They won nominally, but lost in reality. Because there are 16 assemblies and the state can govern in five and the coalition in eleven, so whose wins? – he continued, adding that what matters is who has “real power”.
