The most important problem for us today is that Poland is governed by people who have made a method of governing out of baiting the weak, Donald Tusk pointed out at a meeting with the inhabitants of Bytom. The head of PO raised the topic of the opposition’s list for the elections. “I’m ready to make a decision in favor of one list tomorrow, within the hour,” he said.
With the inhabitants Bytom the head of the Civic Platform met on Friday in Silesia Donald Tusk. – No one will gain as much from a positive, wise, modern, pro-European change as Silesia. I want to convince you of this and I want us to lead to it, so that in two or three years you will say: “Yes, it made sense, it is better, our work, faith, hope had a deep meaning” – he said to the gathered.
– A long time ago, Walesa said that democracy is a war at the top, and people at the top often fight wars so that people at the bottom don’t kill each other. I believe that this task is very important, that holding the authorities accountable for crimes cannot mean a constant, cold civil war between people, he declared.
As he explained, “you have to be removed from power Law and Justicefor law and justice to return in Poland.” – But not to take revenge on someone, but to make people at the bottom believe that the authorities are responsible for something, that when the authorities steal, they change them through elections and then she is accountable to independent judges and prosecutors, he said.
Tusk pointed out that “the most important problem for us today is that Poland is governed by people who have made a method of governing out of baiting the weak.” “It’s not a legal question, it’s a question that is getting louder and louder,” he said. – Do we want a power that rules with the help of bait, lies and contempt, a gun in the belt, power that wants to deal with “this rag“Do we want such people in power?” he asked.
Tusk: I am here so that no one in Poland would say “shut up”
During the meeting, Tusk was loudly addressed by his opponent. – I’m begging you. As I said, anyone who applies, as long as there is enough time – will get a question. You say “shut up” to me again, and I’ll ask you to leave the room. I am here so that no one in Poland would tell anyone to “shut up” – Tusk turned to him. – Neither you, nor those who organized dozens of people today who were supposed to disturb, nor Kaczyński, nor Ziobro with his prosecutor’s office will close me in the literal sense and will not close my mouth. No one will shut me up,” he said. The man later spoke up asking Tusk about the issue of reparations from German.
Tusk: I’m ready to make a decision in favor of one list tomorrow, within an hour
During the question session, Tusk raised the topic of one opposition list for the upcoming parliamentary elections. He also reminded that since he returned to Polish politics, he has been a supporter of one list. – I have a real grudge against some so-called symmetrists or commentators who often say: opposition leaders cannot get along – he admitted.
– Maybe I’m not one of the opposition leaders, but from morning to night, for five hundred days, every day I say: stop teasing and cursing, especially against the coalition. I hear in response: but you are too strong. So what, should I become very weak so that you start thinking about defeating PiS? – He was asking.
According to Tusk, “there are only two possibilities” in this matter. – One is simple and the other requires much more determination. Both are called a joint list, the first one, but not in six months, but tomorrow, the day after tomorrow, if the smaller opposition parties decide that it is in the interest of all of us to make one list, let them say it clearly, we will do it in one day . Just don’t let anyone propose grotesque conversations that last for months, because people, sorry, will vomit if they see 500 more meetings that serve no purpose, he noted.
– I’m ready to make a decision in favor of one list tomorrow, within an hour. As for some places on the lists, say what you want, you’ll get those places. I’m just not interested in who will have what place on the list, Tusk said.
