Beata Stelmach resigns from membership in the Entrepreneurship Council established by President Andrzej Duda. The economist made such a decision after the president signed the act on the establishment of a commission for examining Russian influence, i.e. the so-called lex Tusk.
The Entrepreneurship Council of the President of the Republic of Poland was established on May 10, 2019. So far, as we read on the presidential website, there were over 20 people in its composition, but on Tuesday the decision to resign from membership in the council was made by Beata Stelmach. Money.pl was the first to report this. The economist admitted that the decision was related to the signing by Andrzej Duda the Lex Tusk Act.
– Regardless of my preferences, “lex Tusk” today, in my opinion, is an element of the political game and fits into the absolutely political discussion related to the election campaign. This law disrupts the order in a democratic country. I don’t see a place for me when politics penetrates our lives so much. We have worked too long to have democracy to be strained now, said Beata Stelmach in an interview with money.pl.
