We have a streak of disgrace – said MP Katarzyna Lubnauer (KO) in “Kampania #BezKitu”, commenting on the president’s decisions related to “lex Tusk”. “He signed and three days later I have the impression that he read what he signed and came to the conclusion that it should be changed,” she said. MP Michał Wypij (non-associated) assessed that “it is also significant that very serious people from the world of science leave the president, resign from advisory bodies”. “Somehow he stays alone,” he added.
Katarzyna Lubnauer, an MP from the Civic Coalition, and Michał Wypij, an unaffiliated MP, talked in the “Kampania #BezKitu” program on TVN24 about “lex Tusk” and the president’s decisions regarding this law. Andrzej Duda he signed it on Monday, May 29, and at the same time announced that he would refer it to the Constitutional Tribunal in a subsequent procedure. This should happen by mid-June. He submitted it on Friday draft amendment to the Act in the Sejm.
According to Wypiy, the bill establishing a commission to investigate Russian influence “is an absolutely scandalous project and no decent person should have a hand in it.” – The president did it. So I think some kind of reflection – I don’t know if it was self-reflection or reflection from the environment – came. In my opinion, it’s too late, because there was some kind of disgrace and a huge disappointment – he said.
He admitted that “however, he hoped that a person who could already enjoy some kind of independence, at least party independence, would behave like any decent person at such an important moment.”
– It is also significant that very serious people from the world of science are leaving the president, resigning from advisory bodies. Somehow, he stays alone. – This law also shows one thing – how big is the fear of the opposition leader that they are preparing a law specifically for him – he added.

Expert: Young people are not very interested in politics
In the second part of the program, the president of the Center for Citizenship Education, Dr. Jędrzej Witkowski, talked about the level of involvement and interest of young people in politics.
– In general, young people are not interested in politics. Although they want to be a little oriented, they feel that it is appropriate to be more or less oriented, but this is not the type of interest that one acquires knowledge, actively acquires it, analyzes it – he said. According to him, “young people tend to be less active than their parents or grandparents.”
The expert also spoke about people who are now entering adulthood and gaining the right to vote. – This is another several million citizens, but the problem is that the voter turnout in this group is relatively low – he pointed out.
– Already in the presidential election in 2020, it was the second weakest voting group, and this also means that politicians pay little attention to the opinions of young people. And young people also feel that there is no offer for them on the political market, few politicians formulate such policies that are built for young people – said Witkowski.
