In its last electoral stretch, representatives of the Civic Coalition, Law and Justice, the Left and the Third Way will have their meetings. Szymon Hołownia said that “a vote for PiS in these elections is a wasted vote.” – First place in these elections is possible, I strongly believe in it – said former Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. Włodzimierz Czarzasty appealed to young people.

The mayor of Warsaw, Rafał Trzaskowski, who is running for re-election, spoke at a press conference. He said that “another step is needed to seal the fact that is most important to us, namely that PiS populists should no longer return to power.”

– Tomorrow is the last day of the campaign, so we will keep saying how important these elections are. Also to show that we do not agree to the centralization of power, and that strengthening local governments is absolutely necessary. Because the previous government tried to destroy local governments, took money and took away prerogatives. This is confirmed by the Supreme Audit Office's report, said Trzaskowski.

He emphasized that local governments create democracy today and are a very important element of this democracy. – That's why they need to be strengthened. Therefore, it is necessary to work on a completely new way of financing local governments. These are extremely important elections, he added.

Morawiecki: you have to be prepared for a difficult march

In Krakow, former Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki spoke at the PiS election meeting.

– Being active in difficult times is especially noble. Because after October 15, after October 15, we were, to put it bluntly, bruised, we have to rebuild ourselves in various ways. And that's what I want to talk about today. But I also want to say that there probably won't be any quick fixes. I wish it were like that, he said.

– But you have to focus on the long term, at least several years. And in this longer march, it is better to prepare for a difficult route, a difficult march. The first base of this march is already right in front of us. The first base, (…), are local government elections. In these local elections, we will show not only that we matter, but that we are fighting for the first place. And this first place is possible, I strongly believe in it, said the former head of government.

– The second base is the European Parliament elections, then the presidential elections. But let's all really be prepared for the fact that we will have to fight for victory in the long run – he added.

Hołownia: a vote for PiS is a wasted vote

The leaders of the Third Way – Deputy Prime Minister Władysław Kosiniak-Kamysz and Speaker of the Sejm Szymon Hołownia – appeared in Skarżysko-Kamienna.

– The Third Way is a guarantee that there will be lower health insurance contributions, that there will be ZUS holidays, that there will be less control for entrepreneurs, that the entrepreneur will be treated as a hero, as one who provides jobs and who deserves respect, and not as a public enemy, because that's how the previous government treated him. It's over. Entrepreneurs are our mainstay, said Kosiniak-Kamysz.

Szymon Hołownia said that “a vote for PiS in these elections is a wasted vote, just like a vote for Confederation.” – A wasted vote – and this must be said loudly to those who are still considering it – because these people will not rule. They will not bring you any money because they have already shown how they can do it, he stressed.

– Some can only fester and be against everyone, while others can't do anything. Give them two balls, they will break one and lose the other. This is the government of Mateusz Morawiecki and its great competences. They will not rule. So why invest in them? Do you prefer to have a councilor in the local council whom you can go to and who will be able to handle matters because he will cooperate with the government and the parliament, or would you prefer to have one who will have no power, no opportunity? – he turned to the crowd.

Czarzasty: go vote

The Left's electoral convention was held in Sosnowiec. It was attended by, among others, the Deputy Speaker of the Sejm, Włodzimierz Czarzasty.

He appealed to representatives of the young generation. – Go vote. It's like this: to feel safe, to be able to start a family, you have to live somewhere. This is a simple conclusion. Is it normal that there is currently a shortage of 1.5 million apartments in Poland? The question is how to build these apartments, said the Deputy Speaker of the Sejm.

– The question is how can young people have a place where they will love each other, smile at each other, cook, spend time together, start a family, how can they do it if they don't have a flat? (…). We say – let's build apartments that will always be owned by local governments and that will be available for cheap rent – he continued.

– Is there any point in going and voting in local elections? It is because if councilors from the Left are elected in these local elections, they will make sure that these apartments are built, as far as possible, with the state's help – emphasized the co-chairman of the New Left.
